Great value. Note this is not paracord (550).
on 9 January 2013
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.
