I'm a low power guy (A-D) building Quest and Estes kits. I prefer the Quest style kevlar + elastic shock cord configuration to the Estes paper mount glued to the top of the body tube. I'd like to build my future Estes kits the Quest way.
Would someone be so kind as to let me know which (if any) of the dozens of kevlar threads offered at "The Thread Exchange, Inc." would be sufficient:I don't know how to interpret the mysterious "size" number they give, or exactly what the weight (2 oz. - 8 oz.) refers to.
I know Apogee sells kevlar cord for this purpose, and while I think 10 cents a foot is quite a bargin, I can't bring myself to spend $5.40 on shipping a $2.50 product.
Thanks in advance for all helpful or insightful replies.
