My first Double braid splice

Recommended Posts

Nice one Dean looks great in the eyes of a man that can not splice .


Having said that i would love to learn to splice


I have quite a bit of experience at knicking my ropes and it's always about 6ft from the eye :001_rolleyes:


So I made it a mission to learn and save myself some money in new rope, although saying that I have to thank Bob for doing my splicing previously and saving me loads :001_smile:

I start in the vee of the eye and stitch down about 6-7 inches. I also rotate around the rope as I stitch, so the stitches aren't all parallel, but cross the splice in different directions.


Once you've gone that far a quick whip and box stitch is easy to add.
