    My (4'3") 2 Strand Twist made from 550 cord with fused & whip it end: A good thing to know how to make.

    Hey guys, I made my 2 stand twist rope.
    I used 550 paracord ( I used orange because it's more visible if take the wife and kids out camping), I know we only had to do 5 feet but figured if I'm gonna do it I'll make one long enough that I can get good use out of it. I ended up with 20 feet 2 inches and I tried to get the tightest twist I could.
    Hope these pictures work for you.

    So, 3 1/2 hours later I have almost 26 feet of 2 strand 550 with a whipped and fused end. Hopefully it lasts as long as the one @IA Woodsman made.

    #36 Bankline, approx. 6 feet ( a little less)
    For the bindings I separated some strands which is why they are the same color.

    Hi folks-

    Here's my contribution -about 5 feet of 2 strand made from some braided nylon. I've read about this before, but never actually done it. Thanks for the motivation to give it a try.

    I found some twine in my garage, so I figured I would work on two strand twist.

    Spent about an hour or so last night twisting up my 2-strand rope from 550pc. Length is a smidge over 14ft. I fused the end then whipped it with some 550pc inner strand that was left over. This was a fun one too. Thanks! IMG_1706.JPG

    This started life as a 10' length of paracord and is now between 4' and 5'. This was a pretty neat lesson for me. I've accidentally done things like this before but now I have a much better idea of how it works.

    Used black paracord.

    40' reverse twist man made cordage.

    Whipped AND Fused, apparently I'm an overachiever.

    The man-made material I used for the two stand twist above was 550 ParaCord. The finished twist measured 8 feet 1 inch long. The last picture shown was taken after I burned the end of the ParaCord to secure the twist in place. The pictures above are taken after I whipped the inner cordage to further secure the two stand twist on both ends.

    About 4'' two strand twist from 550. Fused the end. Will probably go buy some better cord and make a ridgeline this way. Wish I would have had more with me. Got time to kill at work.

    Not as much fun on this one *eyes the blister from hot 550 cord*. But, I got me about 4 feet of twisted cordage that will be used as my lanyard for my custom firesteel.

    20170702_171752.jpg 20170702_171825.jpg About 12 feet or so of ACU pattern paracord (not much use for that color now :) to make a 6.5' or so braided cord. Wow, that was more of a hand workout than I expected. Whipped the end, will melt it as well. Wish now that I had left more of an eye at the end but I guess I can untwist it a bit if necessary.

    Had a piece of cotton clothesline rope laying around that I used for this lesson.

    Twisted beginnings.
