          I can't believe you offer shock cord at .75 per foot (ridiculous price), but offer a package with 45' of shock cord in it for $3.99!.

          Shock cord should be available by 100' rolls at about .12 per foot.

          Comments about Texsport Backpacking Pole Shockcord Repair Kit:

          Everything in the kit was great, except for the line guide that goes through the poles. It does not work for fiberglass poles, but the line will go through the poles easily without the guide, it will probably goes through the new aluminum poles. If you are redoing all of your poles it is time consuming.

          Shortening by more than three inches is needed to make the cord/poles tight.

            Comments about Texsport Backpacking Pole Shockcord Repair Kit:

            Purchased this specifically to repair my tent pole. It worked just fine. My 11 year old did the repair with no problems. There was extra after the repair. I figured it is better to have more than not enough. More tent poles may be in need of repair since they are older.

                    This cord is a very good size for several of my tent poles. I need to repair a number of them and it should work for all of them.

                                I didn't bother using the "threading wire", I just feed it thru the poles. No problem. The retaining washers were a nice touch. My poles didn't have them [ just knots ], but I used them. The cord seems too "stretchy", but I may not have pulled it tight enough prior to cutting it. First time I've done this repair. Not a big deal, pull it tighter and re-tie. Works OK so far.
