ive still yet to find the situation where useing termination knots is better than useing splices. now i splice everything and i've never enjoyed climbing so much dosent matter where or why just get high-climb a tree
Spliced ends are good, no doubt. Splicing well used double braid though... not so good. I've never been able to put a new splice on a well stretched double braid. I hear 16 and 12 strand aren't so bad but I've not tried it.
Knots are only slightly less convenient to me. My favorite rope is my 90' section of Poison HiVee with no splices.
thanx for the comp.it was my third eye splice 1st 1 i had to cut off about 4' of rope then got introduced the piano wire fid and that little gadget resparke the flame after my horrable samson tublar fid expearment that splice(and all the splices i've got pics of were done w/ p.w.f.) and sooo much easer only took me 2hrs (at work nodought so the work was on and off mostly on)so now i cant wait for tomarrow i'm take a try on my new p.i.
i spliced some zing-it the other day to make a necklace for my shinny new laser pointer that some of my cronnies & i got a pretty good kick out of
got the idea of spliceing the zing-it watching treedogg splicing an endless loop on scottyfl's cellphone
Many of my electronics have throwline loops spliced onto them. Zing-it is my favorite throwline to splice.
Yep, PI is a class 1.
It should be noted that there are "better" splicing directions for that rope, but they are held by Sherrill and last I checked, they wouldn't share them. For now, we have to do what ANSI says and follow the manufacturers recommendations.
