Tarred Nylon Twine - 1 lb. spool contains approximately 510 linear feet with a 340 lb. breaking strength. This twine is especially black treated and dried before it's put on a reusable plastic spool. It has many advantages over twine treated by "spool dunking." It is uniformly and deeply coated from one end to the other - no "zebra stripes" or tar globs to come off on your hands. It's dry, easy-to-tie, and holds knots well.

Probably the thing I like best about #36 bank line is how stiff and tangle-free it is. Kernmantle nylon cord of the same diameter with similar characteristics is many times more expensive, and I suspect bank line has more long-term durability due to its tar content. This line smells like tar and is slightly sticky with it, but even so tar does not rub off on the hands. Although diameter is fairly thin, this is a 3-ply miniature rope which holds knots well but is easy to untie. I do not believe there is a better cord than bank line for any application within the range of its tensile strength.

After seeing hundreds of videos from Dave using bankline and even other people from different channels I decided to finally buy some. I ordered the 1lb. roll of #36 bankline and have been fully satisfied thus far, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a better alternative to paracord.
Thanks for selling yet another satisfactory product!

I've used this cordage for over 30 years , and it's never broke on me once , and I've used it for a tarp tie-line to boot laces , a clothes-line and lashing straps , it's just handy and stout.

You have to love bank line . You can use it for anything and this one is the best I have found you can smell the tar even with the rapper on... I will buy again as soon as I need more. Thaanks dave and the pathfinder school

So far I have only used this for sewing with the pathfinder sail needle - I cut off about 18 inches and unwound the 3 strands... it twists into what reminds me of stretched monofiliment fishing line, but its a super easy fix - just pinch lightly and pull thru the pinched fingers - straightens up and loses its memory fast. Easy to thread the eye of a needle because there is barely any fuzz... Using this thread is great for reinforcing the cheap thread that some companies use on carrying straps. Closing tip: When your cheapo outdoor folding chairs that were made-in-china break (they always do)- save the material from the chair - all kinds of stuff you can do with this material and this bank line - make pouches, patch tarps, reinforce tarps, sew in a MOLLE system - etc. The frame also makes tent stakes... Also the carrying case makes a nice little stuff sack. Have fun! Thanks to Dave Canterbury for making me think about things differently.

It's ok haven't opened it yet not used it but will

You can do anything you want with this stuff. It is way more durable than 550/para cord. If you buy cheap para cord most of the time it will rot in the sun and weather. Not this stuff.
I have used it for a main line on my trot lines, make shift fish stringer, ridge line for tarps, you name it. I have a few pieces I have been using for a door tie on my chicken pens for a couple of years now out in the sun and weather. It still looks new. This is the only cordage I use unless I need a proper piece of rope.
