    Comments about Lashing Cord:

    Contrary to the description, this cord is not flexible in the sense of stretching to provide a tighter lashing. It is, however, flexible in the sense that it is a lightweight cord that can be handled easily. The waxed feature is what makes this product so useful because it keeps the cord from slipping during the lashing process once it is pulled tight. I am unsure of how well the cord will hold up to the sun and heat of a Texas summer where temperatures can range from 90 degrees to 110+ degrees; however, the cord does not seem to have any problem in the 70 degree to 80 degree range. Subject to seeing what happens over the summer, I would recommend this product.

      Comments about Lashing Cord:

      Surprised when I first saw it as I have not seen cord like this before. So easy to use and very strong. The wax allows it to be securely tied and I'm sure will help prevent it from rotting from the sun or weather.
      I will use this cord for future projects around the house and yard.

        Comments about Lashing Cord:

        use them to tie fencing to stakes, the wax keeps the tie from getting loose, however, don't leave in the sun, the wax melts. But brought in the shade it quickly became it's own self, as I thought it would.

          Comments about Lashing Cord:

          I am ordering a second spool today! I made bamboo trellises 4 years ago and they are still in use. This produce has amazing holding qualities for something so narrow.i can see how using too short a strand could give in bad weather or strong wind but there is no reason to be stingy in wrapping it around bamboo poles.. I am careful when lashing sharp sided metal to make sure there are six or seven layers and that there is no give. The natural stretch or "give" helps to insure a tight wrap.
          I have used it in Michigan and in the Arizona desert!

            I lashed too pieces of bamboo fencing together and to steel poles around a small garden area. The next day we had a 35 mile an hour wind and the entire fence broke apart and was laying on the ground.

                  Comments about Lashing Cord:

                  I would never describe this as "flexible cord"; it is thin & skimpy and I am not sure it will hold the bamboo fence in place for more than a month. Certainly too expensive for the quality and I wish I had just used thin plastic rope available everywhere. Now what do I do with the unused 99% left on the roll?

                    I first used this product 13 years ago to secure bird feeder poles to my metal fence. Those original ties are still securing the bird feeder poles. It is very weather proof and the ties remain secure and do NOT loosen over time. I've tried many other tying products and there is nothing like this. It is expensive but, well worth every penny for securing tiki torches, metal poles, and of course bamboo poles. I store it in a zip-lock bag in my kitchen drawer.

                          Unlike most of the reviews of this product that customers have written, there is absolutely nothing I like about this lashing cord. There was no visible "starting" point of where to begin unwinding it because it's just one sticky, tacky wad of something or other attached to a spool. I took some tiny scissors and gently poked at a spot to get some unwinding going. The result was nothing more than a shredding of what appears to be a very thin, gooey substance. Perhaps what I received was at one time a decent lashing cord, but then it morphed into a gummy mess without a visible end by the time it arrived at my house. In any case, I have nothing good to report about this cord and I tossed it into the trash.
