Great idea, different accessory for martial arts, made out of great material
Only one size and made out of double rope (a little on the thick side)
A couple of months ago Shoyoroll brand released a limited edition of Rank Shoyoroll Bracelets in partnership with Sntmntl Co. Each bracelet has camo on the outer cord but the inside is colored with BJJ belt ranks:

Parachute Cord, also called Paracord or 550 Cord. It is a lightweight nylon kernmantle rope originally used in the suspension lines of US parachutes during World War II.
It is now used as a general purpose utility cord by both military personnel and civilians. The soft braided outer shell is durable yet cushioned, allowing this cord to be flexible so it is the perfect wrap for knife handles, spears and survival gear. The braided sheath has a high number of interwoven strands for its size, giving it a relatively smooth texture. The all nylon construction makes paracord fairly elastic. This versatile cord was even used by astronauts during STS-82, the second Space Shuttle mission to repair the Hubble Space Telescope.

So as fas as quality goes, this is a TOP quality bracelet. As long as you don’t get in trouble it should last a long time. I was curious to see if the cord would show signs of wear and tear, like strings coming out. So far, I have been wearing it for over a month, and it still looks brand new.
These are limited Hand Crafted belt ranked camo king cobra bracelets made for SYR by RV at sntmnlco.[fancylist]

This part will have to be analyzed together with FIT. Shoyoroll decided to go with the King Cobra design, which has double braiding with 2 sets of cord, because of this the bracelet is much thicker than a regular Paracord bracelet with single cord. They are not at all uncomfortable to wear. The bracelet is very flexible and the material is really soft. Even if you work at a desk and use the computer it does not get in your way.
I don’t have thick wrists and they fit me a little on the big side. I think I would prefer the single set cord bracelet, just for the fact that it looks very thick on my wrist. If you decide to buy one of those bracelets on the internet, chances are you will be asked what size. However, Shoyoroll and SntmnL Co. decided to go with the “one size fits all” approach. At the end of the bracelet there is a joint that allows you to adjust the bracelet to fit your wrist, this can be done by pulling the cord and tying a knot. The problem is the knot keeps coming out and the bracelet not only slides to the end of your wrist (where the hand and wrist meet) but it continues to roll until the knot is on top. It is not a big deal, but I’d like to have had the choice to pick a size.
It looks great! One thing that my wife said: “I don’t see how this is related with Brazilian Jiujitsu or Judo, it looks like a surfer bracelet.” She has a point. However, I like the fact that I’m wearing a rank Shoyoroll Bracelet and for the most part nobody knows what it is or what it means. I guess if someone ask about, and I’m in the mood to talk, I can explain. Also, the camaraderie you feel is nice if your friends at practice know about it, or you go to a competition, or just go out do something and people recognize the bracelet. It is kinda like wearing a ranked dress belt (I’ll be reviewing a Vulcan soon here on Ryureviews.)
Should I get a Shoyoroll Bracelet?
Yes, you should!
I think it’s a great idea from Shoyoroll and I’m very happy with mine. If you decide to get one check their website it looks like they added some to their online store (not all colors are available).
