    Ok so I am in the works of doing an at home business. I will be making paracord bow wrist straps with the leather attachment piece and was just curious if people use and buy paracord straps. I have someone who can make the leather pieces for me and found great deals on the paracord so I would be willing to make any and most color combinations as per the customers request. What do you guys think? Good idea or is paracord out of style for bow straps?? Thanks.

    There is still a market for them. I may not be as strong but they still sell. We have been making them for some years now. Do a search online and look on facebook to get some ideas. Selling them into pro shops is the easiest sell.

    I think that you should do a paracord sling that can disconnect into a bracelet. It's something that I haven't seen on the market, and allows you to still do the paracord sling.

    The only issue I see with this is that the bow straps are usually longer so that you may adjust it to your comfort level when attached to your bow so it would be difficult to make a bow strap fit as a bracelet. You can but it's not going to be as tight as you would want a bracelet to be.

    What if you make the bracelet fit, and then the clips on the sling adjust?

    Flo orange dog collars and cat collars. Name and logo are important.

    What about a wrist strap for a release? Someone tells you a type on trigger and head they want and you mount it onto a custom strap with clip. I'll take mine with a Scott head in orange and navy blue.
