    Holding strong!

    Posted by Karissa on Apr 4th 2022

    I use this shock cord in my camper van and it works very well to keep my belongings (clothes, books, good, etc.) in place. I bought a different brand on Amazon and that brand is already losing elasticity after 6 months. This paracord planter cord is holding up very well! It has not lost any stretch and its easy too work with! I will be buying again!

    Excellent stretch to add to projects

    I normally use standard paracord for my work. I recently bought this to add a 'loop' hook where it would stretch to fit. It works like a charm.

    The quality of the shock cord is excellent. Price is outstanding for a USA made item. Shipping prices and speed are really good. Paracord Planet is now my go to place for all types of cordage.

    High quality, perfect for my use

    Posted by Doug on Dec 25th 2020

    Great quality, I’m using this for tent poles of backpacking tent. I have plenty left over if I need to replace again. Since it’s stored more than used the cord is stretched most of the time. Be careful when you unwind, I accidentally dropped it and ended up with a tangled mess.
