Can someone enlighten me please.
I say REV shock cord is 3mm, while someone in "another place" thinks it,s 4.7mm

Any ideas please.

Derek.

I had to check this recently due to making some knotless end caps. I am pleased to confirm that you are not going mad Derek - 3mm.

I know over the years that there have been at least two maybe more thicknesses of bungee used on REVs.
Seems to me that, at least, the early REV I SUL was one with the thinner bungee.

Off topic - Disgraceful! ;)

He does the avatars for all his friends, which is why there is only one other person with a Jonesey Original.

The bungies are black (wouldn't want anyone suggesting I verge of topic)
