Yesterday I purchased 100 feet of #550 parachute cord (I think that means it can hold up to a minimum of 550 lbs of pressure) to make some rope halters with. I made one last night (it actually came out pretty good), and now looking at it, the cord seems more floppy than most rope halters. Is it ok to be soft and floppy? You could ball it up in your pocket if you wanted to. And also, is the rope strong enough? Thanks!
