In attempt to make the lightest possible guyline set I have been desperately trying to splice the 1.2mm (8 strand) tech line from DIYgearsupply. Despite using ultra fine wire and reading glasses as mentioned, and numerous attempts; I was having no success. I had almost given up. Then I thought to search for other thin dyneema line. I came across 4 strand (1.2mm) & 6 strand (1.4mm) 350lbs test braided dyneema spearfishing line.
My question is would the fewer strands make the line easier to splice especially in such small diameter? What other concerns should I have if I chose to use this line?
