    Any chance someone can point me to the "best" YouTube video showing how to make this?

    Nice job Bluefin. Tried working with the ZingIt myself. Frustrating, but will try again when I get a chance to get some guitar wire next week.

    Thanks storm1, I bought 50 feet from Dutch just before you gave me a Canadian address for Zing-it

    Stormstaff,

    I tried to embed a video but no luck. Look for Creative Kayt on Youtube. She has a very good video I just found tonight.

    Hey easyriver,
    Thanks, it can be trying to work with such small line but it can be done. I have never tried one before even with larger line, i guess 1/8 Amsteel will be much easier.

    I use a strand of wire from a bicycle brake cable. The cable is kind of curly still and I didn't think it would work too well, but surprisingly, it does. I doubt that the wire will be around for a long time before it breaks, but that is ok, I have a lot of brake cables.
    Tnx for the tip. I knew where there was a discarded 5 speed. Cut off the front brake cable today and looking forward to trying it on the ZingIt.
