Yale doesn't list a specific eye splice for Blue Moon. I know its just a 24 strand dbl braid so will the Samson instructions be good?
blue moon is a variant of poison ivy or any of their 11.7... The color scheme and name is an exclusive to wesspur, just like poison ivy is an exclusive to ShitrrellYale doesn't list a specific eye splice for Blue Moon. I know its just a 24 strand dbl braid so will the Samson instructions be good?
nope, go with a wire fid on this one... A coat hanger folded in half will be much better... Now for measurements sure, just make sure you taper wellIm going to try splicing a yale blue moon 11.7 mm. Would the 1/2 inch (12mm) fid in my samson splicing kit be the right size?
That does happen with some ropes etc. when splicing “unsplicable’ ropes I actually add a few inches so I have a much longer taper. This is the trick with kernmaster, and how to make a ‘super taper’Referring again to the samson instructions, and splicing yale blue moon. Instructions say to go to a point T, which is 8 strands toward the tail from point R. At. That point start cutting every fifth pair of strands of the cover until you reach the tail. But if i do that i actually have 13 or 14 marked pairs for removal. If i remove all those paired strands i actually end up shortening the tail slightly because it is a 24 strand cover, and i end up with only a couple of strands at the tail. Doesnt seem right. Am i misunderstanding something?
