I have sailed for years. Travelled by schooner from Victoria, Canada to Ackland, New Zealand. I found this line to be of great use when making repairs to rigging on our all block and tackle rigging. I found that it didn't unlay immediately when cut and could even be worked as I would large line for splicing. It was therefore good for macramé and decorative work as well. In particular I used it to form rapping on the metal rails which I then painted. This provided a more natural feel and was warmer to the touch while at sea.

Exactly what I needed
I jug fish for catfish and was using 50lb mono line. Whether it was catfish, gar or bowfin I kept getting break offs. I bought this and the green braided nylon line and I am more than happy with both. I prefer this line (tarred twisted) slightly over the braided, but either work perfect for juggin'.

I used this line to make catfish jugs. It is coated and the knots will not slip. Just the right size for what I used it for and it is very strong.

I bought the Tarred Twisted nylon twine as a utility cord to not replace but supplement my 550 cord supplies. For such a slim product and being tarred, it not only has strength when doubled to equal 550 cord but it is very sturdy and can be trimmed and melted just like 550 cord. You can carry 4 or 5 times the length of the mariners twine as 550 cord in the same volume of space. Not a 100% replacement for 550 cord but It gives it a run for the money in my book. I think a spool of this should be in everybody's stocks.

There are 3 strands. It is not tarred heavy, I was worried about it being messy to handle but it is does not leave a residue on your hands or anythin. It is heavy enough though I think it would hold up to anything you put it through.
