    8' long Arbormaster horse reigns for a friend of mine. Arbormaster shrinks length wise approximately 2 1/2" per splice.

    That looks good.
    My first one is still sitting there, half-buried for months now. 16 strand is hard.

    Yeah, my hands are still sore. It's been too long since I made a lanyard from some 16 strand. :(

    I have spliced 16 strand and I would rather splice used kernmaster than do that again. Maybe if I had a toss wand it wound not be so bad.

    Well I been sick and not working for a while. Got bored and decided to try my hand at splicing. Of course the only thing I had to splice was throw line. Used 1.75 mm throwline was quite the chore. Started with a broke off section. Then went ahead and did the new 180 ft hank of 2.2 mil. Both were of the treestuff branded variety. Can't wait to get a bag of rope and practice with the big stuff.

    Kernmaster multianchor friction saverwith ISC rings. The floating ring is very useful. I made the eyes big enough to pass the rings through. 15143334088422043533334.jpg

    What’s the point of the large eyes?

    To be able to connect hardware and not use the ring or to pass a ring and make a choker. I was thinking it gives me the most options.

    You can call it the Fat Cat Friction Saver.

    The fat cat is Mia, aka Miss Massive Mia. She likes to help me splice by biting the rope and pulling on loose strands. She is why I splice sitting on the floor.

    She doesn't look like the kind of cat you have to call for dinner more than once. Pretty cat, though. Love the colors on that kernmaster, too.

    My version of the multisling. It is 8' 1514480964566420029904.jpg and made of 7100lb mbs kernmaster. I use the multisling almost every time I climb. They are pricy so I decided to make my own with larger eyes.

    My splicing assistant will attack the rope and make sure that it is safe to begin splicing.

    This makes a great basal anchor.
