    Can I get some help with finding a soft shackle how to please

    I am wanting to make some soft shackles from amsteel if there are no issues with this. Could I get a link or a how to video of how its done please I am most interested in the ball type diamond knot but would like to find a how to on the whole process if possible. Thanks for any info or links. This is the style im wanting to make http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O8qKc...B240765B6BECBC

    There is an awesome. Tutorial on youtube by colligo marine I think. Should come up in the top five search results for "Soft shackle" the dimensions will change with the material. I will try to post the dimensions I use with 7/64 amsteel later this evening.

    This is how I learned as well. Opie's pictorals are the best.

    The loop can't pull through because the bury for the loop is inside the stopper knot. It's not going anywhere for a long time.

    +1 on recommendation of Opie's pictorial. Great for suspensions as well as smaller material like tarp line prussics, etc.
