Yale XTC Fire Eye Splice Question

Hello everyone,

This is my first post. A couple of months ago, I purchased the TreeU Splicing Series from Treestuff and since then, I have been splicing everything in every rope bag that I own. Nick did an excellent job with that series.

I have been trying to be creative with some of my old lines and I came across a length of brand new XTC Fire. I would like to use it for a light duty rigging line but it would be awesome if it could have an eye large enough to fit over my backbone mini.

Do I have to do anything different than just the normal 16 strand tight eye? Or is it just as simple as making the eye larger and following the same instructions?
