    These can be modified by using a different stopper knot and/or making them different lengths but you get the idea.

    You beat me to it Bubba. Kinda weird the first time you make one but they are great! My only recommendation, especially with small cord, it to make the second loop of the closure system bigger rather than smaller. My first two were a little to small for my fat fingers to work very efficiently.

    These little jobbies are a little beyond my capabilities at this point. I suppose I could pick a couple up at whoopie slings but they dont seem too much stronger than the micro carabiners that AHE sells. Ill either use that or a soft shackle so that I have an extra strong connector on hand.

    Thanks a BUNCH for all the great info guys, the Soft Shackle and the Soft Shackle Prussik are all new to me and I really like them. Especially the load bearing soft shackles NICE.
