All 550 paracord has the same challenges when sleeving.

Its a nylon rope material with is soft like a shoe lace. So - because it has many many tiny strands if one of those is snagged it kinks the paracord and it wont come out, I throw those pieces away when that happens because they are toast after that happens.

Being its a soft material it promotes those problems with trying to sleeve with a product that does not expand or stretch down too much. If used right great results came come from it, but it does take more time and patience then conventional plastic sleeving.

Also note that some paracord comes furry and poorly made right from the maker, this stuff should be avoided at all costs as it looks terrible. Also there is some makers who use nylon with a sheen or glimmer that gives it a high gloss look with the same color names as the others.

If you have not had the chance give my paracord video tutorial a watch and it will explain it all in detail. (link in my sig)

Also taken from my faq is this:

Quote:
PARACORD - Paracord sleeve is a very popular sleeving choice for those that are on a budget, however that does come at a price. Sleeving with paracord is just like sleeving with shoelaces and the material is nylon, and feels a bit like rope. Now if it is stretched right it will not feel floppy and work just fine, but you will have to take some extra time with it to make sure you get a good result.

The color choices of paracord are super abundant and you can find any color you want in at least a few shades.

Paracord comes in a few different sizes but the most popular sizes for sleeving will be 450lb paracord and 550lb paracord – the difference between the two is some extra strands in the middle of it (the core) and the 550lb being very slightly bigger. Both will work just fine for sleeving.

For finding paracord you simply need to do a search for “450 Paracord” or “550 Paracord” There is many different places to find it, and for the most part the price will be about $10-15 per 100ft roll.

I've never used it so for first timers I'm sure its uniqueness can present challenges. Now these are challenges and not obstructions wink.gif


I've mainly used TechFlex CleanCut so I'm not used to paracord. I'm sleeving individual wires and in its relaxed state, I end up with a lot of slack. If you stretch it to measure and cut, you may end up short. I ended up measuring relaxed and cutting it about 1/2" short from the length of the cable. I sitll have plenty of slack when I stretched the paracord over the wire to get smooth sleeve. With too much slack in bunches up a places and looks wrinkly. My heatshrink isn't helping in this matter and I was thinking of getting 3:1 shrink but I'm already half way through my project, can't back out now frown.gif

Also, Lutro covered a lot info too. Lutro is the man thumb.gif
