Try Grainger, they'll ship it to you.

We're still using 3/4 steel, the last time I compared it was still cheaper than the nylon/plastic. We have had the plastic before and it worked great on 800bf bundles, the tension strength is plenty strong. But it will abraid more easily as someone above mentioned.

Being able to cut it with a knife is NICE though. If you're using the steel, a guy showed me a neet trick for cutting it so you don't have to tote snips and it's sooo simple. Bend it over on it's self and beat it flat with the bottom of your tensioner, which you have to have with you. When you beat it flat, just open it back up and it'll snap apart.
