    Paracord

    It's great stuff, all the way to the core.
    Actually the inner lines are nylon, the real stuff has a total of 14 lines, dual wrapped, so it looks like only 7. Each line is approx. 17.5 lb test.

    cord

    Military "shock cord", "para(parachute) cord", there are plenty of names for it. Its usually 1/8 in thick, 550 lb test, if your lucky(like me) you can find the 650 lb stuff. 7mm is about 400lb test.
