Paracord by Taz

Superior Service, Personalized Attention.

Each month we honor businesses that support the Pooler Lions Club.  One of the Pooler Lions Club Businesses of the Month for October 2022 is Paracord by Taz.  They are a first time hole sponsor of our Chipping for Charity Golf Fundraiser and also donated several fun paracord items for our golf raffle.  Thank you for your support.

What is Paracord?

Paracord, also known as parachute cord or 550 cord, was and is still used by the US Military for their parachutes. It has many uses as a utility. There are 7 inner strands that can be used to sew or fish. The 7 inner strands combined with the outside can hold 550 pounds.

About Felix Cantrell – Owner…

I am a U.S Army Veteran and learned about paracord during my time in the military. I started creating paracord items in 2018. At first, it started as a hobby, but then it grew into a business. I started Paracord by Taz. After about a year, I was on a ladder and had an accident and damaged my wrist. Due to this, I took some time off, but I am back and here we are creating newer and better things.

About Ashley Roderick – Creator

I am a teacher by day and mother by night. I help make different paracord items in between all the rest. It all started when my daughter insisted that I work on paracord with her. Since then it has grown to helping Felix with making items and doing events.

We strive to bring you great handmade products. Our goal is to bring your vision to life. If you have a vision, bring it to us.

Check out some of their most popular items at  They have support bracelets, key chains and key fobs, light up accessories and glow in the dark bracelets.
