Rod & reel lanyards

Bored in front of the telly so decided to knock up some safety lanyards for the shark gear.  50mm s/s krabs tied in to 4mm 550lb parachute cord. These cost me less than £1.50 a pop.

I do similar. 
 

There is someone on Facebook charging stupid money for these, it’s got a spliced end, so what....

Same with shark rigs, crazy money for something so simple.... 🤔🤔🤔🤔

Maybe you should get into selling rigs and bits?

Maybe....

It’s a bit boring making rigs, maybe that is why some people charge £25 for one when it costs £3...

@DINOBOY, I reckon you could have a little side-hustle there. Got to be worth, what, a fiver a pop for those who don't have the time or inclination to do it themselves?

Even more betterer, learn to splice the cord and sell them for £5.50

Splice paracord are you having a laugh? 🤣🤣

Yeah, that ain't gonna happen! But maybe you could crimp it? Quicker than knotting and looks professional.

I wasn’t specifically thinking of paracord. There are plenty of thin cords available, any chandler will have a good range

You’ve cheated. All you’ve done there is stuff one end into the core. A quick tug and it’ll all come undone. 😉
