    I wanted to try a handstrap, but rather than ordering one and deciding I didn't like it, I went out to the garage and got some para cord. Made a couple of different styles, but settled on the DNA weave.

    You can side the front black weave to adjust the tightness on your wrist. If I decide I like using it I will go get more suitable para cord (the Orange is a little heavy and stiff).

    Found some more of the black paracord, so I made a couple of more. The end piece is in a DNA weave and is stationary. The front piece is called a Cobra weave and slides to adjust to your wrist size.

    Welldone and much cheaper. Looks best with the black cord

    Thanks, I thought the Black cord was going to be too light in weight, but after using it today I would say it is the perfect size. It's only rated at 90lbs per strand, so I guess I can't tow a truck with it :)
