    the tad gear glow in the dark cord is just really small (550 paracord sized) rope. It does not have the strands inside like 550 its all one thing exept for being rope i think the stuff is great i tie it on every thing i think i will need to find quekly in a dark sistuation.

    i hope this helps!

    ubraidit.com is also another good source for various colors of paracord, but theirs is 650.

    The GITD cord from tadgear is more like a shoestring than a rope or cord. It's very weak and can break on you if you apply too much tension. It also stretches to be very thin when tying it.

    The reflective cord can be had at onestopknifeshop. It sells in 1000ft spools. Some of us went in together to buy a spool a while back.

    The Type III cord is about 1.75mm thick. That's a guess based on the fact that it's slightly thicker than my 1.5mm MiniCord.
    First they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not stand up, because I was not a Trade Unionist.

    550 test Paracord should be $6 to $7 per 100 Feet.

    I usually get mine from www.countycomm.com
    www.ubraidit.com has ALL the colors though

    I hate to revive an old thread but I have a useful link for reflective and strong line:
    http://www.campmor.com/outdoor/gear/Product___49215
    I have used this cordage for weaving and it's slightly smaller than 550 paracord.

    550 Paracord Place is an awesome place for paracord supplies because they gather a bunch of results from everywhere online and bring them together so you find the best stuff at the lowest price.

    I've just started messing with paracord, but found a lot of supplies at R&W Rope. Not just 550 cord, but 325, 650, oversized, coreless, military spec, etc. They have lots of other rope and cord stuff too. http://rwrope.com/paracord-parachute-cord.html

    Try cjsparacordsupply.com I just ordered 4 days ago and got it today. I talked to Chris on the phone and he said they were getting a lot more colors in mid February - didn't specify which colors. He also said if I wanted something in particular he would look into ordering it. They sell 550 type 3. You can get the Chinese stuff on amazon for real cheap - I don't think it's 550 though.
