    I found this great video showing how to make a e2e using beeline 10mm (blue) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SnqzwNySzFg&t=71s

    I cant find much information around about the specifics of the splice (i.e forums, Yale website). Just wondering if anyone can confirm this is the correct technique/measurements for this splice? Im planning to dip the eyes and end of the cover in 'Dip it whip it', as opposed to the heat shrink shown, followed by a lock stitch.

    Also, is there any strength issues with this core only splice that would make it unsuitsable for use in a SRT situation, I.E. with a wrench? I'm assuming there is a chance of extra loading of the e2e before the wrench engages?

    Thanks in advance.

    @Freddie Fisher; Hey, Freddie! Welcome to the TreeBuzz forum! I think you're going to like it here.

    This might be the first post of yours I've stumbled across since you joined up here, so apologies for the late welcome. I was just going to mention the forum trick of using the "@" symbol before the name of a member that you refer to in a post. No spaces in between the "@" symbol and the members name, or the trick won't work. When done correctly, using the exact name of a member, it generates a notice to that member that he or she was "mentioned" in a post. It is a really slick way of trying to engage another member in your thread.

    Also, I'd like to hear any further comments @ARLO has to make regarding your splicing questions, but you also have the option of sending him a private message and carrying the conversation on between just the two of you. Sometimes though, a thread should remain public, for the education of other members. Private messaging should probably be reserved for stuff that is truly no one else's business, stuff of a personal nature. In My Humble Opinion. (IMHO)

    Tim

    That's great, I'd love to hear from Eric, the videos he has on his account are great. I was surprised there was not much in the comments section on the video. Usually I try to find a couple of sets of directions for a splice (I.e some diagrams and a video from different sources), usually there are some minor variations. I don't splice as regularly these days so a video like this is great, it was all I could find specific to this cord.

    I had a go, it was very easy thanks to
    a) the great video and
    b) brummels not being too challenging!

    It's quite a bit stiffer than I anticipated, I'm not sure I'll be able to tie my preferred knut. I haven't climbed on spliced friction cord for a while and now I remember why.. Might work in a VT so I'll give it a go.

    Am I correct in my calculations that when he says a 'full fid' he means just under 8 inches (for the first mark).

    I rushed the dipping/whipping a little but turned out OK.

    Thanks again.

    Wouldn't this be the same procedure for the 8mm beeline?

    Careful, 8mm bee Line has a Vectran core. Different rules for splicing. Warthog is the guy to talk to about this. I swear he works for Yale cordage.

    The 8mm beeline and the 10mm blue beeline are the same construction. Vectran core and technora/polyester cover. They are spliced the same way.

    10mm black and gold beeline has a polyester core and technora/polyester cover and would be spliced as a class 1 double braid; however it is not recommended to be spliced due to problems with herniation.

    Thanks is chizmin. I stand corrected . I had it turned around. Didn't want anyone to mess up.
