Great cordage. I picked up some of this tarred cordage at the swap meet many years ago.I used it for just about everything imaginable. It was really great stuff, and very strong.Eventually I ran out. I looked all over hoping to find some more. No luck.Very recently I was running through Amazon just looking around. Low and behold I found some. I couldn't be more thrilled.Needless to say I told myself I would not run out again. I ordered many spools of both braided and twisted. This is really great line. You can use this cordage for absolutely anything and everything.The sky is the limit. Bottom line, I couldn't be more pleased.You will love it and it's many uses.If you're not sure, just purchase one spool.You will not be sorry. Just don't run out ! 5Move over para-cord! Love this bank-line!! You can use this stuff for just about everything. Para-cord still has plenty of uses, but with the bank-line you don't have to worry about melting the ends every time you make a cut. You can get the twisted kind, but this braided stuff is the bees knees. I have a couple rolls of the #36 and the #60. The #36 is perfect for your finer tasks, like snares, trot-lines or general lashing. The #60 is closer to the diameter of standard mil-spec 550 cord and has a tensile strength rating of 500 lbs. Do yourself a favor and try some of this bank-line. 5Catahoula Is the Best It is #36 bankline. Some of the handiest tar coated nylon twine money can buy. You can do so much with it. Tie up plants, use it for bushcrafting, trot lines, drop lines, nets ..... you name it. I am familiar with The Catahoula company which is located easy driving distance from me and is a treat to visit the place. It sits right on the Black River and has been famous locally for all of your commercial fishing needs for decades. They make beautiful nets and traps by hand as well. I use to love to go there and browse and watch the ladies knitting nets...man are they fast. 5Stiff and tough, not paracord tl;dr Toughest cordage for its size I've ever seen, better off cutting it with a pair of wire cutters than a knife or (cough) scissors. And like wire, it's stiff, and tends to stay where its put (though no quite the same as wire). Sticks to itself well, meaning even simple knots don't come loose without some work. Does not stretch or compress at all, and is dense (heavy for its size). This is basically the opposite of paracord in every way, which is a GOOD thing.I got this stuff specifically because it's not paracord. Up to this point, most of my cordage was paracord, and I found myself looking for something different. When I was a kid I lived on a farm and we didn't have paracord, but we had all manner of different twines and ropes and did just fine with it. I got into paracord when I was in the military and afterward, especially when it became popular with all the DIY and survivalist types (more ideas and options to buy, etc.), but I've never been completely satisfied that paracord can solve every cordage problem. Enter "bank line", or tarred twine, which comes in various weights as we as braided and non-braided (which is simply called "tarred twine", nothing on the label about being non-braided). The is a review of the braided stuff, I wrote one for the non-braided separately.I could rave about the awesome properties of this twine for pages, and list dings I can complain about, but you don't care about that. Just get you some. #36 seems about right for most applications (not huge but definitely enough heft for almost every job). I might order some of the very small stuff for fun but if I only had one roll of cordage left to survive with, this would be it. Am I going to throw out all my various paracord? Nope. It has some great uses that it's perfect for. But this stuff is the roll you toss in the toolbox or go-bag when you have no idea what to expect from the day. I used to do that with paracord but found it lacking in some situations. This bank line will never let you down. 5#48 NOT #36 I'm new to the world of bank line, but feel like I've made a great discovery..............in a "late to the dance" sort of way. 550 cord is great, and proven, but expensive, and almost cliche' in today's world. Bank line just quietly gets the job done while being very easy to handle. Other reviewers have already sung the praises of this product and I agree with them, so I'll keep this short. I DO want to warn buyers that Amazon is shipping #48 line when ordering #36. I've bought two separate one pound spools of this line, and #12336 should be #36 line The spools arrive as #48 but have been labeled with the wrong sticker on the outside of the wrappers. I'd prefer #36 to get more linear feet per pound, but the added tensile strength is OK, so I'm not bothering to return the line. Just a heads-up. 5Great stuff for outdoors. Found out about this stuff from Dave Canterburys YouTube videos. All I can say is thank you sir. This stuff is freaking great. In some ways way better then 550. Once you tie a knot it's probably never coming back out. Just a warning 5Buy this you will not regret it. This review is for Catahoula Manufacturing #18 Tarred Braided Bank Line, 1/4 lb Spool AND Catahoula Manufacturing no. 36 Tarred Twisted Bank Line, 1 Pound Spool (Approx. 470 feet)Twisted Bank Line-TBLKept hearing about this on YouTube and I figured I would give it a try.The quality of this line is top notch. The tarring is even and smooth, not too sticky but you know you have a tarred line. The tar has has not rubbed off so I am not worried about getting tar on items I am using this line on.I went with the #18 (~165 ft/lbs tensile strength) and 1/4 spool to try it out. Liked it so much that I went ahead and ordered the #36, ~350 ft/lb tensile strength, 470 ft, 1-pound spool. Love this stuff.It is stiff for sure when compared to standard untreated nylon line. I found that the tar creates friction that can make slip/sliding knots harder to move and/or tighten. When friction/pressure knots are used, this line will hold!Since it is braided line, it does not unravel when cut and this makes tying knots easier. Separating this line to get to the individual strands of nylon line would be more difficult with this braided line. They sell the same line strength in a twisted version which unravels easily compared to braided.It has the smell of tar but it is not irritating to me and I hate the smell of tar, gets me nauseous.I like 550 cord but it is hard to find actual 550 cord. Most are labeled as such but when you unravel the rope, it does not twist cleanly, the nylon outer sleeve is loose. This makes tying knots more difficult and I would think makes knots weaker. Also, the relative bulk of 550 cord makes the thinner TBL more attractive. For tying tarp/tent guy or ridge lines, you do not need 550 cord strength. The #18 is more than enough and you can carry 3-4 times the amount of line for the same weight.This does not completely replace 550 cord, but it is now my go to for securing things.This stuff is tough! It also resists abrasion. I used this (#36 actually) to hang my steel target (10" gong, AR500 steel) and it worked all day. no problems. So much for the heavy duty chains.I posted a pic of the basic nomenclature of the various bank lines. This info was derived from the catahoula website. 5seems to be good quality, feels good in the hand This is lightly tared nylon cord. thinner than paracord, but holds a knot well.if you know what your are doing, i am sure you could set a snare with it easily, but according to the research i have been doing online, this would not work for a bow. probably wont stretch enough. anyway, the cord is good for many uses, and is much lighter and smaller in the pocket than paracord. (I keep rope in my pocket and practice knots to fidget.) I did have to use a lighter to fuse the ends of the rope after cutting it but that is expected.One thing is it will cut into the hands if pulling on the cord with the hands, and this is due to the size. 5Buyer beware, this is not a typical 1 pound roll of twine Buyer beware. Instead of what may appear to be a typical 1 pound roll of twine this is actually less than 1/4 pound roll. You are paying 4 times the price that you pay elsewhere. Although the description is technically correct in giving the number of feet of twine, the average unsuspecting customer doesn't realize that they are buying a tiny roll of twine at an inflated price. 1Great quality must have item. 320lb test. This was highly recommended by bushcrafters to use as a substitute for paracord.This will do VERY nicely to do a bunch of things. Tent guy lines, Ridge lines , tripods, emergency shoe laces and a bunch of other tasks.#36 tarred bank line is incredibly strong.This particular company makes some premium cordage.If you want to put it into your pack I suggest you put it into a large zip lock bag, it is tarred, not messy but it might interact with some synthetic materials. It s probably resistant to insects as well.IMO, it s a prepper must have. Nice quality line. 5
