What, in tree work (besides cleaning up stump grindings) isn't addictive?I started trying to splice about a month ago. Why didn't you guys warn me that it's addicting? I keep trying to find more/different rope to splice, and trying different splices. Of course I only do this when it's dark or pouring rain, which is about half the time right now.
I'm not sure, but it seems to me that you might be trying to feed @dmonn's addiction. Your nickname wouldn't happen to be "pusherman" would it?Stay away from ebay. The deals on rope scraps are addicting. And definately don't go to the castobargains ebay store.
That is called a parallel core. Very common with kernmatle rope. That sucks you did not get a braided core. I hope you find some good short lengths for splicing.No shakes yet. I ordered some cheap "double braid" on Ebay to play with, but it's not double braid. Here's a photo. What is the correct description for this construction?
