Disappointed

  • JeffreyCK Wednesday, June 15, 2011 11:46 AM Reply
    I have been waiting for DX to sell para-cord for a long time, expecting it to be a good deal. However this is more expensive then my current source for para-cord, and this is not even the good 550 cord.

    This is 30-meter, and expensive?

    Well this cord is $0.27/m for 140Kg tensile strength which is not horrible. However I can get similar non 550 para-cord for $0.10/m at a store in my city. And elsewhere online I pay $0.25/m for 550 para-cord which has a tensile strength of 250Kg.

    remember the worldwide shipping.

    this must be heavy.

    no everyone gets those prices in their countries.

    the $0.25/m 550 para-cord includes the shipping cost. I just ordered a spool of 305m or 1000feet form the US and my total cost including shipping to Canada was $77US. It is even cheaper for standard olive drab, but I got a multicam colour which cost more.

    If you buy 300M from DX the price is $70 shipped.

    The problem is most people just want a short length. How much is the cost to just get 100ft shipped from the US?

    I agree more colors/strengths would be nice. But if you are looking for bulk spools, DX is not really the place.

    Yes but its not 550 para-cord which is much much stronger higher quality cord. As I said I can get this stuff for $0.13/m(was incorrect in my third post) at a local store. They sell 15m for $2, which is by far the best deal I have ever found, although i still prefer 550 cord. Either way it does not matter it just surprised me as I usually find DX to be really good.

    Are you saying the 550 parachute cord is higher quality because it's stronger? Or is it due to something else?
