I've come across a decent deal for some 1/8" shock cord that I was looking to use to create some tarp tensioners etc. But the deal is going to leave me with a large amount so I wanted to ask what other uses of 1/8" shock cord can I not be thinking of? I partly ask this because I have tonnes of regular cord - various styles, sizes etc - that i tend to use for things like stuff sacks, pack cover, gear hammock. I am looking into an under cover as well as a UQ in the future but would the 1/8" be better to use than cord?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
