    ive found the 1mm reflective to shred very easily in these line locs. 1mm plain dyneema has worked great though.

    Slight digression...

    Best for guylines then as I need to renew a few?

    I am of the opinion that they need not be super-strong as your attachment point will generally fail before the guyline?

    Are you using LL3s? I wouldn't recommend the picharpak stuff either way tbh. As @paul says, the jacket isn't at all durable. Newer lawson equipment glowire isn't as good as the older stuff but still OK.

    @GadgetUK if you get enough to get the deal you want and still have others wanting some of these then I have a bunch of unsused ones still in the bag (can't remember how many but I'll check) I would like to get rid of. There's nothing wrong with them but I prefer LL3s.

    well, the smaller diameter you go, the stronger it needs to be I guess, But how strong is moot.

    At 3mm, for lightweight tent guys, I agree, anything available will do strengthwise. It's lightness and durability or features I look at. (reflectivity/non water absorbtion/non slippage in LL3s etc)

    For Pitchlocks on my Tarptents I use 3mm hollow braid polypropylene because it's cheap, non absorbent, and half the weight of 3mm Dyneema core(or MLD 3mm) and does not slip in LL3s. Had one lot on my Scarp for years now. And also the Oware Mid, and TS mid points. It's a similar weight to 2mm dyneema cored line.

    For smaller line I use mostly 1.5mm or 2mm polyester or dyneema core English Braids, the Dinghy line from the place I linked above, . Cleats do a good priced reel of 2mm line I had one of those for tents too.
    I use Braided 1.5mm polyprop on some tarp pullouts (cheap and cheerful from Aldi)

    Thanks all.

    I am on LL3s.....

    Where do you get the 3mm hollow braid polypropylene?

    I am even going to size up on my Tarptent lines....despite many years of non-slippage ;)....

    From the local shop I linked to above. It's made by English Braids. PM me how much you need and which colour(s) and I can send it up.

    I wouldn't use it for the long apex guys - I use 2mm line, and lock off the loose tail with a Blakes hitch to stop slippage and whipping in wind.

    Just been out testing these and LL3's. Both snapped around the 40kg mark with 2mm cord. The sliding piece in the cord lock and the small bit in the middle of the LL3 that the cord goes around. They fail at lower loads with finer cord, due to a cheese wire effect.
