NOT for heavy-duty use

As with many of Coughlan's "generic"-style products, this cord is what it is: cheap, lightweight, not very rugged, a bit flimsy, somewhat disposable.

I bought this hoping to hang my hammock with it, thinking it would be like any other 550lb para cord, but I went looking for the cheapest item on Campmor and I think I got what was coming to me.

I was surprised by how thin and flimsy this cord was -- the sheathing easily slides off the core (if you cut this stuff, you really should melt the ends with a lighter so the sheathing doesn't slide off).

That said, it does hold my weight in a hammock (about 150 lbs) - but after only 5-6 uses, this cord is starting to rub through itself and develop weak spots. Every time I'm in my hammock, I'm afraid the cord will snap. I should have purchased a more heavy duty cord from the start (which I am about to do shortly).

I will probably continue to use this cord for light-duty uses, such as tying down ends of a tarp - though I'm not sure it's even quite strong enough to be depended upon as a ridge-line for a tarp with much tension on it.
