FX Pace Counter
No Ranger Beads required.
For this FX (field expedient) project you need the following:
- Sharp Knife
- 7ft Cord (ideally 550 Paracord)
Cut the cord into two lengths measuring 4ft and 3ft.
Fold the 3ft length in half and measure 6 inches from the loop.
Tie an overhand knot at the 6 inch mark then a second overhand knot 6 inches down - you will have two overhand knots evenly spaced 6 inches apart.
Now gut the 4ft length of cord and cut into 13 pieces each measuring 4 inches. These will be used as the pace counters.
Loop and secure 4 pace counters between the first overhand knot and loop and 9 pace counters between the two overhand knots.
Caution: Take care when melting the paracord as it can cause burn injuries.
Tip: When melting the cord use the side of the lighter to extinguish the flame and apply slight pressure to flatten the end. This will also secure the pace counter.
If required Pace Counters can be custom made to order.
