    In my mind i can visualize your assistant chasing the strands as you splice. Nice looking job!

    Maybe if the core is braided.

    Thanks. That is exactly how it is. Sometimes I give her a decoy rope to keep her from messing me up.

    You pull them out a bit and taper them. Like the core on a 16 strand. But also like a 16 strand they are not load bearing, and just there for shape and firmness

    So do you pull them out where the cover enters the core, taper them and milk them back in? Makes sense to me.

    They get pulled out at mark 2 and tapered. When you make the crossover and milk the cover/core back the strands will disappear.

    8mm op monkey tail. I figured why not splice the end. Those dmm carabiners with the ansi rated gates are really nice. 15184904923802102751056.jpg

    Nice staging! ... though that is the oddest looking monkey tail I have ever seen ;)

    I had some leftovers from other tools and figured I could use a monkey tail for spar work. I have 7 trees to go in my yard and this will be good for the poles. Spar work is my least favorite. Maybe a different technique will help. The biner is basically pointless unless the eye is not good enough for a stopper.

    Thanks @ARLO for the beeline splicing videos. I have a couple of questions for you guys. Does 8mm beeline use the same recipe as the 10mm?
    Also what do you folks use to protect the core? Maxijacket? Starbrite?
    Thanks

    Thanks for the picture @Brocky . Is that a class 1 double braid on the left ? How did you create the middle one?

    The one on the left is a locked brummel on one end and a regular brummel on the other. I made it before knowing that the tail on the second eye can be braided to form a locked brummel.
    The middle one is made like the one on the right except a short section on cover is first added to the eye, Brion Toss calls it a dutchman's hat. There is a cover tail on each side of the eye that you can whip to the outside or they can be taped, tied down with thread, or woven into the locked brummel, and then the other cover put over it. It's best to use a thin cover for the eyes because it has to pass through the rope for the second locked brummel.
