    If you look at paracord braiding on youtube, you can find lots of suitable things, I would think: https://youtu.be/GazlqD4mLvw

    Gah. Bloody youtube gave me the link to the previous thing I looked at (it seems to do that randomly - normally I check...)

    I use paracord on my longbow and I prefer it to a leather grip.
