    Is theirs any good? I'm also curious about "650" paracord. I know that the number is generally used to denote breaking strength, but if so, what would be the purpose of getting 550 over 650 since they're the same price? :idiot2:
    The main reason I ask is because, I'm going to braid quite a few bracelets, and multiple colors are a necessity. WT is the only place I see with such a wide variety of colors all from a single shipping location.

    shipping is 10$, I've just been trying to find a place to order where the cost of the shipping is less than the cord itself.

    There are a couple of sellers on EBay with good prices:

    Paracord, 50', 27 colors, ±$6 with shipping

    Paracord, 25', 39 colors, ±$4 with shipping

    Note that the second one is for 25', not 50'. I've purchased from the second one, and was completely satisfied. He also sells in 50' lengths for about $6, and both will combine orders for longer length, according to their descriptions.

    I thought County Comm was everyone's preferred choice for Paracord?

    Sweet! This is a definite possibility, especially since it doesn't force me into ordering gigantic bundles. Can you attest to quality? Do any tests on it?

    They only have military colors, unfortunately. Otherwise, I would order there.

    Thanks for the sites. :D

    I am fine with just military colors (od green or black) so I tend to get 450 cord in 300 ft spools from cheaperthandirt.com for 13 bucks a spool and their shipping isnt bad.
