    BTW, thank you for the good deal, TaK.

    FWIW, I am considering modifying the shock cord to a heavier guage . . . it's all in the mods!

    Bet you could either make one yourself or find someone to make one for you for less. A bit of a project but . . . .

    You could try asking ZQ/2Q if she will make one for you.

    I've got one (gently used KAQ) that was made by Patrick. I may be persuaded to part with it, I suppose. PM me if you're interested and we can discuss it.

    I was thinking the same thing myself. The Warbonnet UQ's use 1/4in shockcord because that style requires quite a bit of tension. Your KAQ has 1/8th shockcord IIRC. Split the difference and I think it'll work great.
