    Hi everyone. I have not been able to find a tutorial for EVO loops. I have found info on how to use them but nothing on how to make them. Do any tutorials exist???

    Just look on YouTube - I think they're a Jeff Myers invention. Far as I know he's quite willing to share how to make them.

    Just don't try to find him on HF - he's been banned. And don't try to find him on Facebook - he's been banned.

    An EVO loop is just a continuous loop with the ends tied in a button knot. It is also, a soft shackle without the small capture loop in the middle of the rope opposite the button knot.
    TO make one, follow the Animated knots video on how to make a soft shackle, just ignore the initial small loop step presented between 15sec. and 20sec. during the video. Done.

    SutterButtes I’ve not yet learned to tie excellent knot shown in video—reference my academic credentials in earlier post.
    Another knot you can use is a diamond knot
    YouTube video Lost carabiner—have a backup plan David Hughes aka Phantom Grappler
    I show how to tie diamond knot. Video shows how to make Grapplers Hitch
    This can be an Evo Loop by skipping round turn and skipping tree strap
    The Myers Tech stopper knot, sometimes called Chinese Button knot and also how it’s named in video (I’ve forgotten the name)
    Is larger than diamond knot unless a double diamond knot is used
    It’s also neater than diamond knot
    I would probably tie Chinese Button knot—except I’ve not learned it

    Good luck and Happy Fourth of July

    Clarification, he was banned from the Hammock Forums group on FB, not from FB itself. You can still find him there.

    Jeff can be a little salty at times, but he has great ideas, and has always provided me with very good customer service.

    I too, appreciate all the ideas that Jeff shares and sells! So, have you watched this video of his on tying the Button knot?
