450 Paracord..Where to get it?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I am planning on cable sleeving all cable in my computer with black and green 450 lb paracord, the only problem is that i can't find a place that sells it without absurd shipping prices. (In Canada)

Please let me know where you guys get it.

thanks!

Why not use 550? Practically the same. I can't tell the difference between my 7 core 550 and 4 core 450.

The only reason I wanted 450 was because people have told me that the 550 is way bigger and doesn't look as good...maybe people have been lying to me??

Note: paracord does not expand and loves to snag on pins. Be careful when using it.

this is true, but nothing a small piece of electrical or teflon tape over the pin cant solve. Worked great for me.

also for anyone else interested you can get paracord from here: http://shop.vtarmynavy.com/parachute-cord-p1454.aspx

Sad, because you could have easily gotten it from here:

http://shop.vtarmynavy.com/parachute-cord-c24.aspx

Just click on the length you wanted then select the nylon para cord (on the left)

Edit: I see alanscott beat me to it.
