    Shock cord

    I mentioned to a few others on here and they have bought some too, I just got 300 feet of shock cord 1/8 thick from this guy on ebay. Shipping was fast and I had my choice of colors, It was 8 bucks for 100 feet He also has 3/16 shock cord and many different clips and fasteners on his other auctions. Just wanted to pass it along to any one looking for some.

    No Prob Scissors! Just a note he combined shipping so the more you order wont cost more to ship. Iam not sure what the 3/16 line would look like but iam happy with the smaller stuff for what iam using it for.

    Thanks for the tip. I've been in the market and this is as cheap as I've seen it.
    Good luck,

    Thanks! I've been looking around but haven't found any place that sell 1/8 inch locally.

    He relisted it since that auction sold out, I think he only list 5 at a time so he can bundle it all for the same shipping price but he has many other auctions with the same shock cord so he must have lots.
    I was also impressed with all the fasteners and extra parts he has on his other auctions, its making me try to think of something to use them for at the price he his listing.

    New auction same price link.

    Something looked familiar about that listing, so I checked SupplyCaptain.com to see if the prices were the same. They're 1$ cheaper, but I don't know how the shipping compares. I believe it's the same outfit. I've purchased both 1/8" and 3/16" shock cord from them - excellent products.

    That site does look like the same stuff and I just saved it to my favorites, I noticed that they have a offer to become a distributor. That might be why they look the same, could be someone who has a distributorship is posting it on ebay.
