I've been looking for something smaller than paracord, easier to work with than bank line, strong and economical, I found it in Micro cord. 1.12mm and 100# test, not as stiff as some 1.8mm types. Very easy to handle and doesn't bind badly on itself when braiding, a problem I tend to have with bank line, along with the knotting up when you don't want it to. Micro cord slips over itself easily but holds well when you want it to. I braided a 20' ridge line and was quite pleased with the lack of bulk that the same size in paracord would be. The ridge line I braided came out a very small and light package that held my 225 pounds just fine. I put it over a stout limb and hung from it completely off the ground. It does stretch some but once I had the stretch out it was perfect. Beyond the braided and 2 strand twist uses it would be great for zipper pull replacements, dummy cords, accessory cords and so on. I like this stuff much more than bank line. Micro Cord, made in the USA and soon to be available through Bushcraft Outfitters.
