I going to restring all my traps and have 500' of 1/8" Paracord rated for 160lbs. Will this be OK to use as my main line for 10 1/2" box traps? or should I go with  3/16 in. Diamond Braid Nylon Rope or 1/4 in. Diamond Braid Nylon Rope from HD. Thanks

The paracord will work fine, but it is gonna be murder on your hands when pulling the traps!!! The heavier the line the easier on your hands!!!

Yea that's what I was thinking as well, just wanted to know if anyone ever used it for their main line since I have a whole roll of it. I'm going to go with the 1/4" like I always use, not really worried about my hands but think it would be easier on the kids hands. Thanks for the reply
