    I'd like to attempt making a couple of soft shackles. I searched the threads but I was unsuccessful. Any recommended resources or should I just buy them?

    Lots of good info on that site. The hardest part is figuring out which method you want to use.

    Brought to you by Opie in his typical easy to follow instructions.
    I believe this is lower weight bearing limit knot--you may need to look into that

    Never too late to learn something new! Thank you. I like Opie's presentations. I had not found this in my previous search. Thanks again!
