my first leash madei bought 6" ft. just incase and to make it my desired length of 5/8" black poly braid rope 2 rope clamps that r suppose to be used with 3/8" & 1/2" rope but it was the biggest home depot had and it still works because it compresses the rop so much and i used a quick snap end but you can use which ever you prefer
this is my first flirt pole i used 36" long 1/2" inch wide grey pvc threaded on both ends with 1/2" caps on both ends with a 1/4" inch hole drilled in them wraped in pvc electrical tape for more grip and extra stability to protect me from plastic shards if it somehow breaks on me with 7 1/2" ft. of 1/4" in poly rope with a 90lb. weight load and a 4ft long 6 inch wide folded over piece of green jute.
total cost of the leash was roughly $10.00
total cost of flirt pole was w/o jute is $6.55
then i just went to a fabric store and bought 2 yards of green jute for $2.99 a yard which comes out to $6.50 even
i just made both of these today let me kno what u think.
