    Default Tarred bank line

    Can anyone give me some opinions of the stuff. I see it pop up in peoples kits but I have never used it. Also where is a good place to get some locally?

    Thanks

    Same thing I've been wondering. I can order it in huge spools online, but not sure that what I found is really the same stuff.

    Its great. You can carry hundreds of feet of it on a single spool. Some people say its better than para-cord, but I find that a mix of both lends itself to a kit.

    I use it for lashings, fishing, trap practice and anything I find more of a permanent use. I save my paracord for stuff I know I will be taking apart multiple times like ridge lines. I also don't mind actually cutting it when needed. I try to never cut my para-cord.

    I pretty much agree with arc. Great stuff overall.

    I use it for any project that needs cordage to be cut as I also try not to cut down para.

    It holds knots really well, seems to be stong and durable for its size and its light weight compared to paracord. Its not a replacement for para but a companion to it...

    I tried to find it local but there are major differences in quality. The stuff you get online is actually made down in louisiana somewhere for fishermen. The tarring is much better than what you will find on the chinese stuff in walmart or whatever. The low qualiy stuff will have striping on it where the tarring isn't uniform.

    I'm pretty sure I ordered mine from canteen shop but I've actually found the company that makes it. We ordered some stuff from them for work. As far as I know they only do wholesale. Send a pm and I can pass the info along if interested. I think it would be a great item for bushcraft outfitters hint hint.

    Good stuff Ive seen it up to 300lbs...I have had no luck finding it locally...Canteenshop.com sells them. Its three strand cordage so you have the capability of breaking it down.

    It was once $3, then $5, now $8. It started getting featured in their videos more and became popular now it is almsot 3x the price. I think you can find it cheap at Walmart in the fishing isle, might be labled as trot line, or catfishing line

    Here is some at Bassproshops, same thing for just over $4.
