The standard pulls sent with the Brain Bag are nice but when it comes to cord I usually can't leave it alone. I've got to tinker and customize. So what I've got on the bag now are pulls in a cornucopia of colors and textures to intrigue your senses and stoke the fires of your passion for adventure.
Uh, sorry, I sort of veered into J. Peterman territory for that last sentence. ;)
Anywho, It was a bit difficult to get a good shot of all the pulls at once in the confines of my lightbox. I may have better results in a day or two when the sun comes back out in these parts.
I went with a different color and knot on each section of the bag. Aside from the visual variety it aids in differentiating which part of the bag you're opening.
The back large compartment has a two strand footrope knot.
The other large compartment is done with a wall knot (four layers worth).
The front organizer pockets have a double overhand knot.
The small top pocket got a two strand stopper knot accented with a brass bead from Rick Hinderer.
I'm happy with how they came out. I may tack them with super glue to prevent loosening where they are looped around the metal pulls but some use and break in time is needed first to see how they ride.
