I made my own last year but now I have to make another since I have more calls to put on it.
The problem I have is finding the string to braid. I can't find the size I would like with an assorment of colors. Thinking about using leather bootlaces and try one of the bigger braids from the site above.
Good Luck with yours and let us know how it turns out, I'll do the same.
gilmore 1011 just in case you haven't found your source for lanyard material yet. I am getting my cordage from a local mountaineering sports business. Climbers use various diameters of very strong cords that come in a variety of colors and diameters. The stuff I just bought today cost .15 cents per ft. When the lanyard is ready to bring both ends together for the bottom drop. Have the neoprene discussed below, turned inside out and sewn with a good quality nylon heavy thread. Turn the neoprene sleeve right side out and thread the lanyard through the neoprene sleeve. The sleeve then becomes a cushion for your neck. Possibly floating a dropped lanyard when it hits the drink. Use some old wader neoprene from an old pair of waders no longer being used. (Never throw them away when they are too leaky to repair.) All kinds of uses come up for that stuff.) :wink: Cut a strip approx. 2 1/2 inches wide by approx. 14 inches long and have it sewn as descriped above. Lots of lanyards for sale out there but none as valued as the one you made yourself. Good luck! C. Dubb's pics should put you right on track :beer:
