Hi,

I am a one man splicing shop working off the coffee table. I go by ChanMadeGear. Find me on Instagram for orders I fulfilled and Etsy. I'd do prefer email/paypal processing to avoid fees. No funny business. I can show you feedback thread from sailing forum.

I make soft shackles using only Samson AmSteel-Blue. When looking for soft shackles, you want to see sellers mention the main fiber, Dyneema, or Plasma. These are the top HPME fibers for synthetic rope. Many sellers only mention UHMWPE which is unbranded from a random factory. Samson is the strongest name in the rope industry since the 1870s. They use Dyneema in their AmSteel-Blue rope. This is all I use.
I currently work with 7/64, 3/16, 5/16, and 7/16. The sailing, camping, and arborist community have been using my shackles and I've gotten very positive reviews.

Guessing most want 7/16 for recovery. I am selling (1) 8" for $31 + $6 shipping with tracking. I can make all sizes so if you want others, let me know what you want and I'll work with you.

For a pair (2) of 7/64:
1" and less =7.25
2" = $8
3" = $8.50
4" = $9
6" = $10.
Each additional inch is an extra .50 cents
Shipping for 7/64 is $2 first class large envelope, no tracking. If you but woth other sizes, only pay that other shipping.

For a pair (2) of 3/16:
4" = $20
6" = $23
8" = $26
Each additional 2" is an extra $3.
Shipping is $5 with tracking.

I haven't made prices for 5/16 yet. If you'd like those, I will work on them

For all the shackles, I offer 2 styles: with bury and non bury, 2 strands.
