    Best reflective line that works with ringworms and other hardware

    I love using Lawtons glowwire for my tarp tie outs and recently bought some Dutchware ringworms. Glowwire is not ideally sized for use with the hardware. Is there a different reflective line that is?

    Dutch used to sell a product called Reflect-it that was basically a spliceable Dyneema cord (comparable to zing-it or lash-it) with a reflective tracer woven into it. It doesn't seem to be available currently, though I don't know if that was because the product was discontinued or if there's a supply issue related to Lawson changing shops recently.

    NAMA started selling a similar product last year, and its diameter should be close enough (1.9 vs 1.75) to the cordage the ringworm was designed for to work well.

    I ordered this (100' hank) and it doesn't indicate that it is Lawson glowire, but after holding it in my hands and tying a couple of knots I think it is. If not, it is the most exact facsimile I've ever seen.

    Could it be that Mr. Kline has decided to go wholesale and drop retail? If so, good for him. I hope his other products survive the transition as well.

    I have some Reflect-It I'm no longer using. I'm happy to send it to you. PM me.

    I just ordered a few rolls of this line https://go-outfitters.com/products/g...everyday-carry

    Looks pretty good, but i haven't actually taken it into the field yet.

    The company has been really good to deal with though.
