    Got a pic? I can not get a mental picture.

    Or are you talking about something like building a spliced eye with the rings incorporated into it?

    No, like the fisherman's loop Grizz describes in his webbing suspension vid.

    note to self: get a camera!

    There is a knot free closed loop, its called a "loopie sling." It has the same characteristics as the UCR, in that the bury is not being pulled on by both ends. I can do one.....

    Heres one I did when I thought it might be an interesting option... But its adjustable. I wonder if I locked it and sucked one of the tails in if it would hold...

    Ok Dave... I think this is it..



    I locked it with a brummel and pulled both tails in. Any length could probably be achieved... And it does feel strong...

    The loop idea came up in the Molly Mac Pack subforum. Hogn8r tried it out, or something similar, but concluded that using cord was "too fussy in the cold" -- see lesson learned #3 at the bottom of this post.

    Shoot me the price, and I'll get on it.
