    Might as well order more. 100' won't be enough.

    Fun stuff. Just made my 1st soft shackle. 1st lesson learned, you need more than 16" in 1/8"amsteel. This one's 'cute', about 5/8" ID on the loop,looks just like a full grown one though. Good practice, even got the diamond knot right.

    That would make a good keychain...
