Soft ShacklesWhile investigating l-36.com (mentioned in my last post), I found a page of ideas for soft shackles. I had seen some soft shackles at WestMarine, but they were $25 a pop and seemed ridiculously expensive. After reading that page and a page at Grog's Knots, I decided I could tie my own soft shackles, learn something and have fun.
I found 50' of 1/4" dyneema single braid cord. I followed Grog's directions and built a soft shackle.

And they won't be orange.
