Updated thread with what ive decided to go with after a bit of modifying.

Going to scrap the UK paracord.... british is always best...but after 10 rabbits are loaded up, the thinner cord may be harsh on the hands.

So...

Paracord 550....this has a breaking strain of 350LB!...and WONT ROT.

comes in BRIGHT GREEN or CAMO.

can mix them if you want...for example 'green loops-camo handle' and vice versa.

They are 22" long and have 5 loops either side...can do 6...or less...

Any more would be a tangle.

This cord is decent stuff, nice and wide, ties flat and good to the hands :yes:

10 quid for 2 posted second class.

7.50 for the carriers....2.50 for the postage :thumbs:

20130319_144433_zps7a5bdb7a.jpg

2 small carriers can be clipped together to make one large for over the shoulders and with all the loops together it is ample for padding :thumbs:

AND...

I have decided to sell the LARGE, over the shoulder/round the neck carriers.

These have british paracord loops and through the centre....

And the paracord 550 as the 'strap'.

These take ages to make and use up around 15 metres of cord!! :yes:

Olive green uk cord loops and either BRIGHT GREEN or CAMO strap.

42" long

Price is 10 quid posted and a pack of plasters :laugh:...just kidding.

7.50 for the carrier. 2.50 postage.

Payment for all is by cash through post /bank transfer etc....(preferred)

Now accept payment via paypal....either send payment as a gift....or add 50p onto the price for 'goods'.....paypal are robbing cnuts and im losing out with 50 a d 70p on the price :thumbs:

Hahahahahaha

I just scrolled down to say exactly that!!!!

Iron your flag you tramp!

But, that said ...................


I'm well impressed with how far you've come there, they look fantastic, the materials, the construction, and once you've ironed your flag, the ad too.

Remeber me saying about doing something you're proud of, well I reckon you now know exactly what I meant.

Good work, am really pleased for you that you've got here.

Cheers for the comments lads.

I only used the flag because it shows the camouflage colours better.

Didnt have a clean white towel in the garage, they are all 'dog' towels.

I dont mind making these, made myself a 'secret' jig :laugh: which is all measured out so i just 'tie away.....

Im disappointed that i didnt use this cord sooner, as the uk cord ones are way below the quality of these :yes:....

Workmanship is the same...but the material makes all the difference....

Got a few fittings for a couple of paracord survival bracelets too, wont be selling them though...just handy to have.

Cheers again for the comments...

And any ideas what i can make let me know...if i cant....i will learn how to :thumbs:

Not too much work. But the price would be too expensive to be 'competetive' :thumbs:

the 550 cord is 10 times better than the uk stuff to tie with....

 

its got a coating on the outside and 7 inner woven strands.

 

this stuff is true survival cord :yes:

 

you can take out the inner cords and use them singly as fishing line,rabbit snares and so on.... will get a picture up of it :thumbs:

 

its not just about me tying it...its once the carrier is loaded up,with the weight of 10 rabbits.....I think the uk cord may dig in a bit....

 

and if the walk is 700m....its going to hurt like hell.

 

this stuff ties flatter too meaning the handle is a lot smoother and comfier to hold :victory:

The UK stuff aint that bad when its fully loaded. I've now used some softer cord on some of my handles, it does lay nice and flat, plus it gave me the chance to add some colour into them.  a

Are you buying in 1000' spools of the 550? nice and cheap in those quantities  :thumbs:
