    Default Cheapest place to buy 550 cord

    Newbie to the forum and survival/prepping. Pardon if this is wrong place for this thread. Where is the best/cheapest place to get the 550 cord everyone has so many uses for. I have seen some in many different colors and have read that some of it is better than others. How do I know I'm getting the good stuff.

    I don't know if this is the cheapest, but it looks like a great value.

    The "good stuff" should have 7 or 8 inner strands.

    Don't be fooled by the price of the 550 cord alone. It's almost universal, but it's the SHIPPING that will kill the deal. Watch 'em all....they're out to getch'ya!!

    My brother got this one in black and gave me half of it. Shipping is not bad either.

    Sorry to highjack the thread, but is there any real difference between paracord and the "utility cord" you can get from Walmart?

    +1 For Campingsurvival.com. The company is great to deal with. Never had a bad transaction.
