Technically not a splice, but... I was told by wesspur that they can't sell the km3 max with a sewn eye due to insufficient break test numbers that do not meet the ansi 5400lb standard. Treestuff said no problem, Sherrill has a sewn eye available on their site as well. After a bit more research, teufelberger's website says 3370lb for a sewn termination, while the standard kmiii is rated at 5400mbs sewn. Any insight on why this might be? Does treestuff/sherrill know something that wesspur doesn't? Or is wesspur more cautious and fastidious than the other vendors?
