The stake and guyline loops on my Big Agnes tent are starting to fray where they rub against the edges of the stakes. Putting the stakes with the point of the V facing toward or away from the tent makes no difference, I think it’s just what happens with very thin cord (2mm-ish) used to stake out a tent. So I’m thinking Kevlar is pretty abrasion-resistant, but probably also quite a bit more expensive if it’s even made in that size. I’ve seen 10m lengths of 1.8mm cord from MSR, but have no idea how durable it is.
I’ve used this tent maybe 10 nights in all, I think I can get 3-5 more nights out of these but would like to do them ASAP. Am I overthinking things and should I just use standard nylon cord that gets replaced once or twice a year? Or is Kevlar the better/more practical way?
