    Reflective shock cord?

    Can anyone tell me where to get some reflective shock cord? I see it online but I'm not seeing the right thing I think. I'm looking for the stuff that comes stock on the Blackbird, but can't seem to find it anywhere. It is shock cord right, not draw cord? Please help LOL

    Not sure if this is what your looking for but I can bring a sample this weekend if you are going to make the hang. Just let me know.

    Thanks John, unfortuantely I just can't make the hang this weekend. I did see that stuff on Arrowheads website, but wasn't sure if that was it or not. Is it like bungee cord almost? I don't know what the difference between shock cord and draw cord is

    I haven't played with it in a while but I think this cord was static with no stretch where the reflective bungee gives you the stretch. I'd have to pull it out when I get home to confirm.

    I don't know what the difference between shock cord and draw cord is
    Draw cord is "rope", not designed to stretch much while shock cord is "elastic" and stretches but it's overall break stregth is much less.

    Hope this helps.

    Shock cord is elastic draw cord is not. I've never seen reflective shock cord of course I suppose someone probably makes it.

    This is exactly what I thought, but just wasn't positive. Thanks...

    The shock cord that came on my Blackbird is reflective, I wonder where Brandon gets it.

    I'm pretty sure it's reflective, I hope I'm not imagining things lol

    Ok, think I found what I'm looking for. Now I'm thinking that it isn't reflective, just bright...
