ANYBODY MAKE THEIR OWN WRIST SLING?
Was wondering where the best and cheapest place there is to get para-cord.
I don't make my slings as i'm only good at tying knots. lol
Give these a try.

I've used just a piece of stiff rope, Hutch. The paracord slings require a lot of playing and i don't like the result very much. I've bought paracord 550 for about 30 cents per metre, but i'm sure in the States it'll be much cheaper.

Thanks guys for the input. I am a DIY'er and I like to do things like this. I did find a good place for para-chord. Thanks Double S for the links. In the near future I hope to make a better one then I have.
I use a piece of 1 inch wide nylon webbing, been working for years.
Hutch, I sometimes use old leather belts, cut a piece to size, braid para cord or use thicker diameter nylon (no rot) rope. Leather punch a center main hole for stabilizer bolt attachment and punch 2-3 smaller holes each side of center in the leather for the weave-in of the rope. I just copy cat the ones you can buy in the shops...no new ideas here. The belts can be had cheap at any thrift shop or goodwill store. Can also use soldering iron to burn pattern in the leather. Leather also available at craft shops but usually too pricey.
