Great value product. This paracord in particular is advertised with a 70kgs break.
Over the last 3 years have virtually used a full role for a variety of things, outdoor pursits, garden, house.. and Im back to buy another spool. I've never had an issue with the spool, so can't comment, maybe just something people ought to be aware of.

Paracord is available in many grades, both with core strands and with no core. So these guys advertising this as paracord, well, its not incorrect. What people generally associate with paracord is the Paracord(550) grade III with a core of 7 strands - this is rated to 550lbs/250kgs break. The paracord 550 is dearer, cheapest I've seen it is £7.50 per 30m delivered. So around about double of the cost.

So its horses for courses. If you have a heavier requirement use paracord 550, for lighter duties use this one.

I usually have a generous supply of both and does me very well.

I plan on pitching tarps and hanging a hammock with this cord. It holds a knot quite well and seems reasonably robust. Although no snap weight was included for this product in the description, I consistently saw 1m of the cord snapping at around the 75kg mark. Not bad for a 100m of the cheap stuff. I'll be doubling up for the hammock! I can certainly get plenty of tension on the cord for guy lines and ridge lines and the cord doesn't elongate too much under tension. For rigging and lightweight support, great. Don't plan on rappelling or using this to secure very heavy loads!

My only real gripe about this purchase was the spool that the whole thing came on. As soon as I took it from the packet, the spool actually BROKE APART in my hands! This left me with a 100m birds nest of 3mm cordage on the floor. Not cool, Web-Tex! Not cool!

I ended up cutting it into 3 sections and untangling that ungodly mess - 100m is actually quite a lot! :)

I'd appreciate if a small dab of glue held the spool together. Other than this, good purchase for the price and quantity.

Excellent quality, and one of the best prices going. Can be used for lots of different things, but I'll be using mine as a decoy motherline (Cut into 2 x 50 metre lengths). Now just to find some longline clips and crimps, and I'll be finished

NOT PARACORD! This item does not have individual strings running through the centre of it, it's just fluff! Has it's uses but definitely not para chord.
