Figured I would ask since you already ran the test.
not sure, i didn't think to measure it after i took the weight off, as i was headed out the door for a hike, the piece i used was about 25' total and now i'm not for sure which end i used

I have been making my own gear lately and plan on getting good rope, I just keep using the 550 cause its here.
nothing wrong with using it as long as you know your gonna get some stretch......it is after all about getting out and enjoying the woods, and i would do it using paracord too way before i would ever stay home
