Got to say, neither do I care. The commercial
grade stuff is fine for my purposes too and the multiple colours are very nice.
I was just pointing out that you and Stumble are not talking about the same para-cord when you were discussing whether it is 3mm or 4mm diameter.
para-cord is actually not 3mm. The Mil-Spec doesn't actually have a size requirement, but it is almost always 4mm. "
and you then showed your non Mil spec
cord measured 3.15mm with the comment " Looks like 3mm to me. "
Mil spec 3 ply x 7 is generally around 4mm.
Commercial 2 ply x 7 is generally closer to 3mm
So you are both right. Apples and oranges
