Great to have in your Bob. Light weight and doesn't take up much room, very useful. The plastic can be melted and used as an adhesive. One of the springs (once reinforced) can be used as a fish hook. There are a few useful screws and small metal parts that can be used. The best part is of course the tape itself. Once stretched and twisted like cordage it can be used for all sorts of things from sewing to fishing line, trip wires and snares. I believe it could also be used for a bow string but haven't tested that yet. Anyone else know of random items like this that have alot of uses?
