    I also have heard stories about sub standard shock cord. I quite agree there is a lot of margin to play with but it might be worth doing some research.
    YMMV

    That's why I'm hoping this stuff works out for me. If not I have 500ft of hair ties for my wife.

    It's not online, and REI doesn't open here till March 1, so I got 1/8" shock cord at West Marine for 67cents/foot.
