Since I'm the lucky winner of the bigshot trigger thingy I feel compelled to give something back so here's the deal...

This is a Treehouse benefit auction for a custom, made to order lanyard with the following specs:

- 24 strand Tachyon line in your choice of Orange/Blue or Green Blue
- 8mm HRC or Beeline (your choice) adjuster with trigger snap slack tender and grey Petzl Am'd ball lock biner
- Hand spliced on one end with CTI snap or grey Petzl Am'd ball lock biner
- You specify the length between 6' and 15'

I don't have pictures of a whole lanyard but here are detail shots of mine with the CTI snap and an HRC adjuster...






All materials are new, unfinished cost is between $50 and $60. This will be a nice lanyard. I've made a few so far as gifts and nobody's given one back yet. :D

I'll make the lanyard to the winner's specs so it may take a week before I can ship it. I'll cover the shipping in the US or Canada... assuming canook mail isn't stupidly high. :what:

Proceeds should be paid directly to the Treehouse Financial Services Department.

Bidding opens now and closes Sunday the 20th at midnight.

REVISED: Bidding now closes on Monday the 21st at midnight.

Did I do that right? Never did an auction before. :?

I have a number in mind but I don't want to kill off the action early. :P

$61, just to keep Squishey from winning. :lol:

When I win, can I mail you an aluminum locking snap to use in the lanyard?

Sure thing. I can add a plastic grommet to the eye splice if I get'em in time.

Thanks for getting it started Squisher.

Sweet auction, Blinky. I'm trying to save money right now though. Where do you get that snap? It looks really nice.
