Re: Splicing tools

Cheers for the pics Dak but i am still not sure how that will work? the one i saw on the video was a pointy tube and a part of the rope was stuffed in the thick end to push it through the rope so i dont see how your wire works??
I suppose i really need to give it a go to figure all the ins and outs.

You thread the wire fid in through the opposite end, trap the tail and pull back through.

Re: Splicing tools

cheapest way, not having to fork out for tubular fids, which on small diameter rope are pretty tough so i'm led to believe.

Jamie will sort you out, very knowledgeable by all accounts

Re: Splicing tools

Check out the Norson splice, does not require much equip. Don't know if it is acceptable in the Arb world but appears a strong splice.
