both end spliced rope

Recommended Posts

any advantages to this looking to buy a new rope and noticed this 
You'll always get much more wear at the splice end, so having two splices can mean twice the life out of the rope.

Or if you damage the rope and need to cut a section off you still have a splice so again doubles the life.

Then again if it's a long rope you don't use much then it will still need retiring at 5 years so maybe not save anything.

Be aware of the ropes characteristics as some can milk quite a bit. If you've spliced both ends, there is nowhere to go.

Also a nightmare if you're using mechanicals

The cover and the core dont get zeroed out properly meaning there is movement between the cover and core. Normally this just means once you've climbed on it a couple of times the cover extends a little bit and the core sucks up. You just cut it off though. 

If its spliced both ends, there is nowhere to go.

 

Remember though, if you've got a splice each end, you won't be able to use a Zigzag. Plus, and this is my personal pet hate, companies will splice the rope then put the ID shrink wrap on the end and you need to cut it off to put a Mechanical on.
