This strap was painstakingly designed to the. Design in auto-cad for precision. The last pic shows a screen shot of the rivet diameter hole, exactly. In the same spot at.1105 height of the strap, so each smaller perimeter stud is exactly. The same distance away from the edge of the strap. If that's not close enough, I don't know what is.. Every stud hole has been lasered to its perfect location on the strap. After trying different stud styles and application methods. I settled on the rivet style. Only because the stud post, measured with digital calipers.
105", can be lasered out to 1/1000" smaller so that it fits snug in the hole, making the front stud placement perfect. Stud sizes are 7mm, 10mm and 12mm with 16 center placed Silver Plated Rope conchos. This aligns all of the studs in a straight line. There are 36 of studs and over 500. Total on the strap and they're all set by hand.
The leather is high end. Tandy 4-5oz Select Leather, smooth face.
With padding and a 3-4 oz deer tanned leather backing with full length cotton padding. Adjustment at the tail allows for full length to 55"-59". Plus with a longer optional tail. All double stitched back and front all the way through with 50lb thread for strength.
These are one of a kind and the nicest quality around, you will not be disappointed. And all of the straps in this series will bear this shape.I'm making another dozen right now hence the preorders.. This strap is made entirely in the USA and that means something. There are well over 500 studs hand set into this strap. I tried looking overseas and got samples and the quality and the attention to detail. However, if you do not like this design, I can custom make you one. Just send me a message and I can do anything. These straps are not cheaply made and have weight to the, they FEEL. Expensive when you pick them up and hold them in your hands.
