Title: BOLAS - different types, making my own and need help please
Post by MapleMatt666 on May 2nd, 2024 at 3:17pm
Hi guys, Id like to ask on various types of Bolas, maybe depending on localities in South America, different styles, different ways of making and materials used for such, also would like to try to make my own, as a first stuff ever.

I do not know, which tools would I need and what do would You recommend me to obtain or buy for such project. I do not want to go the simpliest way as I am not rushing, so it can be a longer term project, but want it really look good and authentic and maybe meanwhile for run make something out of paracord. Same thing, do not know what type of paracord do I need and the lenght of it etc.

Any knowledgable guys can help me out please? It is kind of a new hobby and I want to be good at it, so unsure, would be 50 USD enough for purschasing the material or do I need to add something up to it, I have low knowledge of this and will appreciate any kind of link on youtube or other experienced members advice, tips and tutorials.

If someone can go bit more indepth, I would extremely appreciate that. Thanks alot to everyone for helping me and wish You guys nice evening! With the products or either tools for making, please, try and be bit more specific

Im thinking of buying 100m paracord, its a 3 mm thin, is it good choice, or should I order different thickness or even different material for rope?

Don't sweat it.
Take 3pieces of string.
Take 3 circles of cloth.
Put gravel in the cloth.
Tie them into bags.
Knot the strings together, whirl and throw.
Don't like it ?
Try different string, different cloth, different lengths, whirl and throw.
Better or worse than first ?
Learn by experimentation, using what you have before you waste money on something which may bring you no pleasure ... or become a life long hobby !

😁👍👍
