Nothing major. I just thought I would share this to make some sort of contribution to the forum.

I used one cord to make the length of strap to fit the user. I then completed a basic cobra knot for the full length. I left it about 1/4" short on each end for freedom of movement. However, this was made 8 years ago, and it appears the user has removed about 1" of cord from each end of the strap.

The cobra is flat enough that it's actually very comfortable.

If I tried to tell you an exact measurement, I'd be lying.

I think it was somewhere in the ballpark of 20 feet...ish.

Sorry I can't be specific for you. It was so long ago I can't remember.

all good brother, I found a video on how to make a rifle sling & I will use its measurements comparatively to figure out how much I need.

Rule of thumb is that it takes one foot of cord to make one inch of the basic Solomon knots. If in doubt, tie one inch of a pattern, and then untie it and measure how many inches of cord it took to make one inch. Add a bit more to be on the safe side!
