Hey everyone, Ben, from living survive on today, we're going to talk about what might be the best option in Paris, accord, Titan, survivor cord. So stick with me. I don't know how useful cordage can be in a survival situation, not only in an urban environment, but especially in a wilderness environment. You can use cordage for all sorts of things, such as lashing, traps, fishing, all sorts of things. And now it's even easier with Titan survivor court. You get lots of different options bundled up into the regular pair of cord that you and I are used to Titan pair cord. However, has a product in addition to their regular high quality pair cord called survivor cord. And what this is is it's five 50 pair cord, but then you get three additional strands in there. You have a copper wire, you have a wax to do twine and you have fishing line, which is awesome. Making it multipurpose even more so than just regular cordage and perfect for keeping in your kids. So I previously reviewed some pretty cool pair of cord from live fire. It was their five 50 fire cord. And what's cool about that is it had the one strand of waxed jute twine in the middles that you could rough up and use it for Tinder. The only problem with that stuff is that it's very expensive. Well, Titan pair cord is cheaper and it has three additional strands. In addition to the seven strands that normally comes with five 50 cord with tightened pair cord, you get a 25 pound test monofilament fishing line, which is plenty for a small panfish and on up to, you know, large mouth bass and things like that. You can certainly get the job done with 25 pound test. You get a strand of copper wire. Now it's 30 gauge. So it will break if you pull on it, but you can double this stuff up double or triple or quadruple, however much you want. And you could certainly make snares with that doubled and tripled up. It's not going to work. However, if you just try to use it as a stand-alone strand, copper wire is also certainly useful for conducting electricity or just using as sort of a binding cordage. When you're wrapping something together, then you also have a piece of wax do twine, which is great for starting fires in useful as Tinder. So then what's left is the seven strands that you typically would see in five 50 pair court. And these by themselves can be pulled out and tied together to make even longer cordage. And you could even unravel each of these strands into smaller strands, tie that together. And then you can make yourself a really long bit of cordage if you didn't need the full strength of the five 50 cord. Now, just like the fire cord that are reviewed this stuff does bunch up sort of as well, because it's got that copper wire in it and the the jute twine. So, you know, it, it may not be best for bracelets or lanyards, although it would certainly work, but just having this stuff as the para cord portion in your kits is awesome. Having that additional capability that it provides. So one of the things I wanted to know when I first got this stuff was how well you could cut it, having that copper wire in there and the fishing line and the twine, does it cut just as easy as regular pair cord? And the answer is yes, you can cut it just as easy as regular para cord. So another thing I wanted to test out was whether or not those three additional strands, the fishing line, the copper wire and the jute twine would break or snap in half under tension when using the line as a Ridge line, for example, or maybe even repelling with it or something more heavy duty that you would use para cord for. So I've tied this really tight in between two trees, and I'm just going to give it a bunch of weight and we're going to see if anything snaps on the inside. I can see it stretched out a little bit, just from my knots on both sides. I'm going to go ahead and tension that back up as best I can. No, we're going to try it again. I'm actually going to try to, I can hang from it. All right. So I untied the line and I'm going to go ahead and take the outer casing off and we'll have a look at the inside. It looks like we might have a breakage. Yep. The jute twine is broken. Doesn't look like the copper wire snapped yet. Let's keep going here. This was about 15 foot or so copper wire is still intact. Can I get to keep stretching this cable out to be able to get it off here? All right. So the jute twine is broken there too. Okay. Keep pulling the rest of this off here. The survivor cord has a really nice outer sheet to it. It's, it's just, it's a really high quality pair cord, even without the inner strands in there. Now do Twins broke again? They're so far. I think that's the only thing that's broken Copper wire. Nope. Still Do twine broke again, Which is really not a big deal. I mean, if you were pulling the jute twine out, you're going to break it and rough it up anyway. It's more important that that fishing line stayed together. The copper wire too. I mean, unless you're using it for electricity, if you're going to use it for a snare or something, then you're going to double it up anyway. So it wouldn't really matter if it broke too much. I gotta be getting close here. Okay. There's the end? Alright. So the jute twine broke in several spots and here's the copper wire and the fishing line. So let me try to separate that here From the seven inner strands. Okay. It looks like the fishing line and the 30 gauge copper wire stayed intact through all that tension. As I said, the jute twine broke apart, but that's okay. Cause you're going to rough that stuff together to create Tinder. Anyway. Now when you pull the sheeting off of this five 50 cord, you want to hang on to all of this because this makes excellent cordage as well. And it's a very strong even by itself. So here's, what's left of the 15 foot. I've got my fishing line, which was very easy to separate and very easy to coil up. Definitely handy, very useful at 25 gauge, got my copper wire here, again, maybe not useful in single strand form as a snare, but doubled up or tripled up and twisted together. This would easily be able to make it pretty decent snare. Again, you could conduct electricity with it all sorts of purposes for that. And then of course, you've got your outer sheath, which makes great cordage by itself and all the inner strands, which you can lash you know, shelters together with and do all sorts of things with this as well. So what's left is the jute twine. So I'm going to go ahead and I'm just going to rough this up really good and make it into a Tinder ball. And then we're going to see if we can light it with a Farrell rod. So how I process this down would be the same as I process any stringy Tinder down, such as Cedar bark or just regular jute twine. I'm just going to ball it up and rub it together. And you're going to see that the, the little strands will start breaking and it'll fluff up really nicely. Just keep kind of rubbing it together and twisting it. You can kind of pull at it a little bit. You know, what you want is you want it to just separate all apart and break apart and just get real furry and get lots of little hairs and lots of surface area that'll catch that spark. So I'm continuing to this, work this down till it's a fluffy ball. So the more you process this down the better, but I think that's probably good enough. We'll see [Inaudible] One little spark And you see that stuff works great as Tinder with that wax in there, it's going to burn long and hot enough for you to get some small sticks and some small kindling on there and get your fire going. [Inaudible] You can see that this 15 foot strand burns are quite awhile, plenty long enough to get something else going. So hope you guys enjoyed that video today, taking a look at the Titan survivor cord. Now this comes in all different colors. I'm going to leave some links below to their website. They also do sell regular pair cord, which is very high quality. If you want to pick up some of that as well. I like that they put the little Velcro fastener on it to keep it nice and organized and price wise. You're going to be surprised as well. This stuff for a hundred feet will only run you 25 bucks, which I think is a great deal. Typically good high quality pair cord will run you about $10 or so for a a hundred foot roll of pair cord. So with the additional stuff that you're getting in here, I think it is worth paying double for it. It may or may not be to you taking a look at that live fire cord. However, it's 40 bucks for a hundred foot rolls. So definitely a much better deal with the survivor cord. Then the five 50 fire cord, because in addition to that wax, did you, you're also getting that 25 pound monofilament fishing line and the 30 gauge copper wire.
