    Seattle Fabrics carries 1/8 inch reflective shock cord. Not sure on the price difference, but I know people on the forum have bought fabric from them before with good results.

    Oh! You're thinking of the shock cord for the side tie-outs. No it's not reflective. I think mine is just plain white. (more off-white/grey these days) I did a search, google has nothing on me. I think this is what your wanting.

    But it's only in 1/4" diameter

    ebay is the only place that i've found it where it's half way reasonable and even there the shipping is a bit high, but it's the cheapest i've found anywhere.....

    the stuff arrowhead has isn't shockcord it's a static line, i've emailed him with this very question and that is what he told me

    Reviving this thread. I'm also looking for reflective shock cord for my HH tie outs. I found this but I'd like to know what size shock cord comes stock on the HH.

    it's been quits awhile since i replaced the shockcord on my HH, but i would say it was 1/8 or a bit smaller, i replaced it with some regular 3/16 on mine, wanted something stronger than stock to help hold the sides open

    1/8 inch seems to be the standard everywhere I go. Sometimes you don't need thicker to have more shock, you just need better quality.

    I use Novabraid, because it has good elasticity even when very cold. You can find it at many chandlerys and other marine shops. Not reflective though...
