    Reflective Shock Cord & Guylines?

    I'm looking to go semi-stealth, and getting some things together for my DIY projects. Is there a (one stop shop) where I can get Black Shock Cord and Black Guy lines with the reflective trace in them?

    I want them to be for the most part stealth (trying to avoid yellow, orange, red lines), but still be able to see my lines with my headlamp so I don't closeline myself at night.

    I've found some options on eBay, but it says Bungee cord, which I think is slightly different. I even found some Paracord with reflective tracers, but kind of expensive.

    And I would certainly call that one stop shopping! I'm heading to your store now, thanks!

    I just realized you have black shock cord, but not black reflective shock cord. So I'm still on the prowl.

    I like your products by the way. I've been looking for a reason to buy some stuff from your store for a couple weeks now.

    I'm just curious (and certainly not being judgmental)... but why the need for "stealth" camping? I understand the niche of people who emphasize other things (backpackers are weigth conscious), others are more comfort oriented, etc. But I guess I don't get the point of stealth camping.

    Woops, sorry missed that you wanted the shock cord reflective also, I have one of my suppliers checking to see if it is something available without a 1,000 or 10,000 foot order.
