2.6 Cord and Stake Bag/Rock Throw Bag I carry my stakes and about 6' of extra cord in a small sack. Recently I was trying to get a line over a tree and was looking for a better way. I added my 50' of line as the pull cord for this bag - 50' for a little bag?. Voila! I now have a combination stake bag and throw bag/cord for my food bag. For cord I use 550 cord with inner strings removed.
