You splicing wizards could quite probably help me out... I want to take a stab at splicing stuff other than 3-strand. I'd like to buy just the tools necessary to get started with the following ropes, without buying a lot of stuff that I'll end up not using or needing. I'll spend what I need to, for what works best, but I want to make sure I don't go overboard in the event I decide it's not for me (although I think that is unlikely). For now, just what works best for the job I'm most interested in doing. Tenex Tec I understand that hollowbraid ropes are very easy to splice, so will start with this one. I'm really only interested in splicing 5/8" and 3/4" for now. Stable Braid Is this one hard to splice? Only interested in the 5/8" size at this time. Husky I thought that I read somewhere that the All Gear Husky rigging rope was easy to splice. I'm very interested in splicing the 5/8" rope. Any help you can offer will be most appreciated. Remember, I have NO IDEA what splicing tools are needed for what ropes, and the only splicing tool I own is a Brian Toss Point Hudson Phid that I use for the 3-strand ropes.
