I have some of the CountyComm orange paracord. It is very bright, though I can't say I've been able to compare it to any other orange paracord. It's great for lanyards, especially on dark knives or flashlights that tend to disappear in dim light or tall grass.

What kind of braid do you want?... round, flat, three strand, four strand, more??? It's been my experience that 550 braids/bends just like any other cordage.
