I have not ordered Rio Grande’s version of this cord–cheaper from a
rubber supply house. All I know is my personal experience and that
is that I have had no problems myself or complaints from my
customers. I found out about the cord from a glass artist I used to
know. She used them to string murini canes long, twisted murini
canes into necklaces. She used them for years and found them to be
more durable than leather.
