    Cousin atrax splice how to

    I personally do not like the splice and don't do it for customers. Will do it for friends who are insistent but would not do it on my own ropes. It is a personal choice. The splices patent does not specify a brand or exact diameter of cordage acceptabe, but a range if memory serves correctly. I...

    Yupp. Where it looks whipped i taped it then removed the tape when done. The core was 12 strand. 12 strand round braid is very easy. I didn't bundle mine, not sure what the strength diff would be if any

    Burried separately. I dont want the cover interfering with the core. Jacket is just for abrasion resistance and UV protection. The internal brummel eye is larger than the final eye allowing the cover to burry and extend inside covering the brummel eye beyond the throat ensuring the core isn't...

    Modded rope guide The tether was from a failed splice my boss did (small eye) the jacket on the eye had bunched up on him and the crossover bunched up. Waste not want not, pulled his splice, got it taught and burried it, then did the spring loaded soft eye on the other end.

    Cousin atrax splice how to

    Interesting. First attempt on arrow frog with 50/50 reduction gave a smaller diameter, went with leaving extra strands in and got a constant diameter. A friend i gave instructions to also left extra strands in on cougar blue with good results. I do think it's going to vary greatly from cordage...

    Cousin atrax splice how to

    It is 300mm, from inspecting two factory ropes the completed measurements are correct. I've helped a few people 1 on 1 do it and i really need to get around to making revised instructions Super quick rundown At the moment what I'm doing is measuring down 750mm, pulling the core and milking it...

    28" i2i Both are class 2 locking brummel splices with the jacket covering them for protection. Rebraiding the tail on one of the brummels to complete it is required to get them both covered.

    Are there any double-braids that are "easy-splice" or are they inherently a PITB?
