    The best place to buy it is from the supplier of the block. That way you know you are getting grid that is specified for the block you are using... Anyone that sells SRW block should carry grid.

    The cost varies by supplier and type of grid, some grids are heavier than others, and thus cost more. IIRC, Versa-grid 3.0 (for Versa-lok walls) comes in rolls of 6'x150', and our supplier is selling it for ~$400/roll. The Versa-grid 5.0 (or is it 6.0?) is more. Our Keystone supplier has Stratagrid, I think a 5'x300' roll (I THINK that's the size), is ~$700. Like I said, it varies by supplier and type.
