Jack,


Like "Drmerdp", I'm going to assume you are talking about the cord on your recoil starter, and not the "drawstring" cord that keeps your sweatpants from falling down......:devil:


I got pretty tired of cords falling at the worst possible time (or so it always seemed....), and bought about 50 feet of mil spec 550 parachute cord. I think it is now on three of my pieces of power equipment, and the one that has been on there for 3 seasons now still looks like new.


There is actually stronger paracord, but a true 550 is rated for a minimum of 550 lbs before it will snap. Coils up pretty nice too...:wink2:
