/ Uses for 1m of dynamic rope?
I've an offcut of 1m of 10mm of dynamic rope that's brand new and no idea what to do with it.
any ideas of useful things to do with it?
Have already made a couple of flat non-knotted rugs so a place mat shouldn't be too hard!
swim tails? if its brightly coloured?
it's not quite long enough for a cows tail (infact its an offcut of a set of caving cowstails!)
What is a swim tail? I tried google but failed.

Unweave 6 inches of the sheath and flay the kern out a bit and you a have a sexy flail
keep those suggestions coming though!
Other than knot and clipping practice (probably not quite long enough), what about turning it into a loop and using it to clip all your rack to when transporting it into the car etc
Dressing gown belt
second the dog lead idea... PYB have provided me with a few over the years (i have a mate who gets peeved off at the tat left all over north wales and takes it off crags, he then usually leaves it in the boot of my car).
Playing with the cat - a length of 6mm cord soaked in catnip is one of two ways to get her out from under the spare bed.
The other way is food!

It a short length of rope that goes on the back of a kayak for swimmers to grab on to if your rescuing/assisting them. it reduces the chance of you being pulled over by a clingy swimmer and is a bit easier to hold (IMO) than some grab handles
Long enough for some bouldering routes on grit...
Cheers for pointing out the difference in name.
