So yeah, not much to really say, except that compared to that sub-par rope, this stuff from Rothco feels fan-freaking-tastic. In terms of paracord for utility, I can't attest to a 550 lbs. strength, or whether it has 7 triple-braided strands inside the sheath, or even if it's legitimately mil-spec (it is Rothco though). But it feels like a completely different magnitude of quality. I believe 'supple' is the most appropriate term.
Unless you absolutely have to have a specific color or pattern for your arts and crafts project, however, I recommend buying only this product. I know I will.
During a cold weather camping excursion, we were trekking through remote mountain roads outside of Prescott, AZ. My buddy was enjoying his new larger off-road tires on his truck, and we were plowing through snow like nobodies business. It wasn't until going down a steep hill that we realized we hit a dead end. Upon turning his truck around and trying to get back up the hill, we simply didn't have the traction. But don't worry, he said, I've got snow chains.
Yes, he did have snow chains... for his older, smaller tires. After coming to this realization we all had a "oh crap" moment as we realized a sub-freezing night was coming, and we didn't have enough gas to keep the truck running with the heater all night.
One last ditch effort, I pulled out my rothco paracord and we attempted to tie the end of the snow chains together with it to keep them on the tires. Amazingly, we were successful and the truck with it's snowchains/paracord Frankenstein crawled back up the hill.
So, if this story tells you nothing else, it's rugged and got three guys who didn't plan well out of a sticky spot.
