    Sep 11, 2007, 6:15 PM - Affordable Girth Belt? #1

    Batninja posted this in the Boba forums, and I'm just curious if this could work as a Jango girth belt as well?

    I dont think there is really much difference between the boba and jango, maybe a slight color difference, but I believe thats it.

    Actually they are very different. The Jango girth belt is 19 strands of 1/4" round braided leather cord. A mohair girth belt wouldn't be accurate in the least bit.

    There's a significant difference. Jango's girthbelt is constructed of 4-ply 1/4"(approx.) diameter braided leather rope, leather backed, and uses an entirely different closing system which includes a cover.
    I'll see if I can find a few sample pics.
