    Question Long lining...

    I need to get a pair of long lines, like these:
    Basic Cotton Web Long Ground Driving Lines - Statelinetack.com

    My question is, why can't you just buy two cotton lunge ropes and use them the same way? It would be cheaper, so I'm wondering why people don't just do that.

    Is there a reason?

    Don't know about your question.

    But I make my own driving and longlines out of the 1/2 or so diameter rope that you can burn ends and mash so won't unravel, couple of swivel snaps, quilting thread and electrical tape.

    Been making them this way for years, 25 feet long, and works great.

    That's a good idea! That would make life easier...

    Agreed. Home depot is the cheapest option!

    Those lines seem to be thinner and lighter weight. Also they are 40 feet. Way to long for me!! I learned with 15-20 foot reins, much easier to handle! $40 seems pretty reasonable for them though, that's $20 each. About the same you would pay for a lunge line.
