just use a lighter. It'll work the same as long as you're careful with it.

Lol, I definitely melted the crap out of the insulation on the wires of my last little soldering project when I went to do the shrink tubing and used a lighter.

I'm pretty sure you didn't use the blue part of the flame didn't you? Rest of the flame is too hot

I've burnt heat shrink on accident, but that's cos I wasn't careful. I've used nothing but a lighter on the 600+ wires I've sleeved and it's worked out just fine.

Paracord is absolute crap. Don't bother with it. If that's all you're looking to sleeve, get 20 meters of small sleeve, then 15 meters of the Sata sleeve. The Sata sleeve will work well with USB as well.
Get 1 meter of heat shrink in both small and in USB and you'll be good to go.
A meter is roughly 40", so youre saying get 50' of sleeving for SATA cables?

And paracord is not absolute crap. It may just not be to your liking. However, im using it in my next build and like the way it works and looks

Why does that remind me of shoe laces?
