Zpacks Z-Line Dyneema Cord 1.2 mm

rated 4 of 5 stars Very light weight makes this a good addition to one's kit, but it cannot replace conventional cord/rope in certain applications. The UL qualities of Dyneema  cord and similar tech fiber cords are amazing. I like Dyneema cord for its weight/strength ratio, but it has certain limitations and considerations worth noting. As Vladimir commented, the cord is rather stiff, which is why it is easy to untangle—good—and untie—not so good. In fact knots in dyneema cord may have the tendency to untie… Full review

Hilleberg Guy Line Runners

rated 5 of 5 stars Probably the best available guyline tensioners on market. They fit a variety of guylines (not only those supplied by Hilleberg), very easy to tighten and release with single hand, never slip off the line. Originally available under Clamcleat Line-Lok brand.

Finally I purchased two more scores in 2-mm size from original manufacturer… Full review

rated 5 of 5 stars Strong (over 200 lbs / 90 kg reported) and extremely brightly-colored 1.2-mm cord, perfect for making ultralight guylines and similar applications. Immediately after purchasing my Hilleberg Kaitum 3 tent I saw that it contains around 25 meters of strong and overly thick 3-mm cord divided into 8 dual guylines. Normally I use the guylines on my tents very rarely, so after some time I decided to reduce the bulkiness and weight of my tent by replacing the guylines to more lightweight ones, preferably… Full review

Coghlan's Reflective Guy Line

rated 5 of 5 stars A 50' length of reflective 2mm cord which can be cut up to make guy lines or used full length as a ridge line or for a bear hang. Includes a small biner. What you see is what you get with the Coghlan's Reflective Guy Line; A 50' coil of 2mm line that has reflective threads woven in. It also comes with a small biner with a wire gate. While the label says Guy Line and it could be cut into lengths usable for that purpose, it can be used full length to hang a lightweight bear bag or as a shelter ridge… Full review
