    yes, this soft shackle stuff opens up possibilities in a number of ways...

    thanks, but I'd rather be hiking in the Gorge than making videos in my basement!

    How strong do you think the slider knot is. For instance, if one were to use a single piece of amsteel for the suspension triangle of a bridge and used your slider knot at the apex, would that be strong enough for attaching over the diamond knot at the end of your whoopie? I haven't thought this through enough perhaps...
    The wraps will be strong enough, but with the angle of the suspension sides they'll be trying hard to tear the knot apart. Another challenge! The key will be the way the wrap is tied off....

    I was going to call this the Dutch Free Suspension (DFS) but
    a) all the computer people would confuse that with Depth First Search
    b) your cult following would come after me.
    No thanks.

    Hardware free at the expense of a whole lot of software. My hardware rarely causes problems, but from time to time my software still causes a crash.

    Oh wait....sorry, I thought we were talking computers. Never mind.

    And just when you thought it was safe to go out and hike.

    Seriously, that is very interesting.

    Very nice work Griz... really like the idea of the lashing on the whoopie loop....

    I'm going to be making some soft shackles out of zip-it to use on a tarp set up when I get home, and then got to thinking about making some from 7/64 amsteel to use in place of the toggle in my suspension set up. SO instead of the toggle in the MSH I'd use the soft shackle... I'm sure some has tried this, if so how did it work out?
