I bought some from my store (Sportsmans) about a month ago. It looks like the real stuff (has 7 inner strands), but I bought it off a bulk spool and didn't pay much attention.

you can call and ask 828 1500

I'd like to find some in different colors.

Thanks. The stuff on the spool is 650, close enough for me.

BTW 650 break strength is typically 350# compared to 550# for :duh: 550 para cord.

I've been getting into knotting lately and have made a few emergency bracelets. Just something to do while hanging out in camp.

Each one is made from about 20' of para cord and is about 3/4" wide and 1/4" thick. Even if you didn't wear it on your wrist it's a compact way to carry 20' of para cord in an emergency kit.

I'm also wanting to do some knife wraps and stuff.
