Fishing line as general-purpose cordage

The following shows, (from left), 250lb test PowerPro, Kelty triptease, and parachute cord.
Kelty triptease is 188lb test. Not sure the load rating of parachute cord.
The Power-Pro is a braided Spectran line. Easy to knot - not easy to untie. Very light. Very strong. And at $44/150yds it is way cheaper than triptease, which goes for $15/50ft.



Hope this is helpful
