This line is great, easy to use with cold fingers and when paired with the line cleats ver very easy to adjust.
I had to get up in the middle of the night as snowed and my tarp got heavy and fell !!!
Easy fix
Easy to see
Easy to handle
I’m getting some more!!

Very slippery when new and tangles easily as opposed to standard army hootchie chord braid. Knots help after rubbing the chord with some dirt to take the shine off. Light and strong other wise good!
