Hey, everybody. Welcome back to big ready D C and today we're going to be talking about survivor cord from tightened survival. As some of you know I was recently blessed with becoming an affiliate affiliate for tags and survival in being so they send me products once a month to test out review, tell the community, tell my, the ADC community about their product. And in turn they, they offer some pretty good discount, like with this, with their black Friday and cyber Monday sales. They've got some great discounts for their affiliates and their, the viewers of their affiliates. So I'm able to share that with you. So that's pretty cool, pretty awesome of them. But what we're going to be talking about today from tightened survival is their yellow reflective survivor court. Now basically survivor cord in general, I just happened to have the yellow reflective survivor cord. That's what they sent me. So there you go. Little bit more about five record. There's some specs on it. Pause. If you need to, hopefully I'm holding it steady enough for you. Yeah, you can see here, I've got a chunk of the survivor cord. What makes, shall I record? I guess it's different from any other pair cord is they use a mil-spec nylon. So their tensile strength is greater than 620 pounds and they also have seven strands Plus three extra strands. You've got the extra strandic you've got the wax jute twine. Yeah. And the wax jute twine obviously used for fire Tinder. It's made from a it's paraphrase impregnated Jew. That's what it is completely odorless. They soak it underwater for approximately four hours and they're still able to start a fire with it. So that's pretty cool if they put it to that test and it's actually worked for them that way. That's pretty awesome. Then you have a brass it's referred to as a brass snare wire right there. Now the scenario water is 30 gauge, which is 0.2, five millimeter. It's a proprietary brass alloy with a tink tensile strength of right around seven to eight pounds. And not only can you use it for snare wire, but you could also use it as like an emergency antenna, a trip wire electrical wire and you know, a way to bind things together. And then of course their last extra strand is the 25 pound monofilament fishing line. And it's high strength, Moto, you know, saltwater, freshwater. And there again, if you need, you know, 25 pound monofilament, that's some decent Mala monofilament, you could use that to bind stuff, tie stuff together, you know, make our rudimentary tool if you needed to or something like that. So quite a bunch of, I mean, just some really cool chord, a lot of extras in it. It's not just your typical, regular old pair cord. Now I know there's a lot of people have been asking me, you know, Hey man, or when are we going to see the I've had it for a little while? They're like, when are we going to see this survival cord? And you know, quite a few questions. One of the questions I asked is what was the wire and the extra stuff? How does it cut? Well, got my handy-dandy Maura knife cuts pretty easily. The wire, the mano cuts just fine. Now the other question that I was asked is if you use an it for like, you know, for like making bracelets and that type of thing, you know, how stiff is it compared to regular pair court? Well, it does have, you know, the three extra strands, so you can tell, you know, it does kind of not like that. That's not too bad, but it is a little bit stiffer obviously. I mean, that's just kinda, that stands to reason. How does it tie? Well, it ties pretty well. Like I said, it is a little stiffer to use, but not that bad. You can tie, you know, good tight knots with it. That's just an example. I made a, I made a buddy a little like pair cord key fob for his key ring, you know, a double Cobra, key ring or key fob. I made that for him and tied just fine. As a matter of fact, I found, especially with the Cobra, we've maybe not so much with the snake, not, but with the Cobra, we've, it almost feels like it actually may hold just a little bit better. You know what the, I don't know if it's the wire that helps it, but that was, that was kinda my experience with it. And I put the, I put the lanyard on my buddy Jr's matrix to lightweight Mannix, to lightweight, excuse me, that he lent me. So I asked him, I was like, Hey man, I'm going to do my testing with my survivor cord. Can I put a lanyard on one of your knives? He's like, yeah, you bet. So there it is. But yeah, it, I mean, of course it is a little bit stiffer than your regular pair cord. I don't, if I had to guess, I would say that pair cord projects probably weren't their first priority when making survivor cord, you know, so that little less flexibility was probably not in their, in their wheelhouse. I don't know. I haven't spoken to them to directly and asked them about it, but with everything else that's in the survivor corridor, I'm guessing the Paris accord projects was probably on the backside of it. But as far as just tying, you know, tying knots and stuff like that, not bad at all. Now when you're doing stuff like that and I found, you know, like how you singe the hands and stuff and getting it to unravel you may want to fray it out a little bit. Maybe not really the monofilament, but maybe the wire, the snare wire, you trimmed that back a little bit and then fluff it back and singe, you know, just so you don't have that wire, you know, and I did it on one and I left, I purposely left it out. I should've showed you that. And then was kinda, but there, I mean, it's in there. I mean, yeah, you can feel it, but it's not too bad. I recommend actually I think that might be the motto that's poking me more than the breast wire is. So yeah, it might not be a bad idea to just clip that a little bit back back a little fray, back up your hands and then send them like you were wanting to. So what I mean, the monofilament, I mean, fishing line is fishing line, right? You can, you can tie line and see if I can get the brass wire out of here. Here we go. See you there. I got that piece of brass wire and I mean, it's pretty tie it up. I'm going to sit here and try to tie a snare, but let's see here. This is probably gonna hurt, but wow. I mean, I'm pulling, I'm pulling on that pretty good. And it's not breaking, so it's got some pretty good strength to it. I mean, they said seven pounds, but wow. I mean, I don't know. I can break, you know, six, seven pound monofilament line, fairly easy in there. Finally. I must've got it. That was pretty good. That took, that. Took some. So the snare wire is pretty good. I mean, and again, like I said, monofilament fishing line is fishing line. So I don't think there's a whole, whole lot. We need to go over there. But like I said, you know, not only can you use it for fishing line, but you can use it to tie stuff up 25 pound test, good amount of fishing line. So how about we go see how this waxed jute twine takes a spark sound good. I'll be right back. Well, here we are guys in the super lamivudine, big red EDC testing laboratory, also known as my yard. And you see there, I've got a bunch of the wax jute, twine got afraid out there to help it pick up a spark a little bit. We'll see how it works. And as you can see, I don't know if you can tell there, but we've had some pretty wet conditions. This old stump here is kind of wet. So we see what happens. They said they soaked it in four hours and we're still able to get it to take a spark. So we'll see. We're still in there. There you go. So yeah, little bit of work took a spark pretty well sitting there on that wet stump helps if you're not as shaky as I am. There you go. Not too bad, not too bad that worked. And of course I'm a little off center there. Sorry about that. But I think you can see that it took spark pretty well, right on let's go back in the house. Well, here we go guys, back in the house. So yeah, we saw there, the wax impregnated, paraffin, impregnated and paraffin wax do twine took a spark pretty well. Get a nice shower, a spark on it lit up pretty good, burnt for a little while. And that was about roughly a foot worth of cord. That was the twine out of about a foot, a pair cord. And as it shy, roughed it up. So it would help take a sparkle a little bit better. Yeah, I think that performed pretty well. So there you go, guys, that is survivor cord by Titan survival. Another, I mean pre-record is something pair, cord, survivor cord. It's something that not a bad thing. I have a, a bundle, a Hank, excuse me, of survivor cord in my truck. I have a box in my truck. It has my jumper cables, you know, basically emergency type stuff in, and I have a handcuffed survival cord in there. Just a great product. You can still do pretty much all your pair, cord projects and everything with it, but you got that extra insurance of the Firestarter, the mano and your breasts snare wire. Thanks a lot for watching guys. I wanted to get this up because as I said, our good friends over at tightened survival have given us some coupon codes and stuff for their black Friday sale and all the description for everything instructions will be down in the description of the video. So until next time, guys, thank you all very much for watching. I hope you all have a wonderful, fantastic Thanksgiving. And I know I probably have some viewers out there that don't necessarily celebrate Thanksgiving. So I'm not going to leave you out. I hope you have an absolutely wonderful, wonderful day as well. And until next time guys, I will talk to y'all later. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.
