excellent demonstration, very easy to undertstand.
couple questions: so a regular eye splice is just a smaller version of this where the threaded end/taper just remains inside the braid instead of being pulled back out? how much do they suggest being buried for a simple eye loop splice done by this technique?
so you started with 10', so now your max length is 8-9' or so and you're min is 5'? (maybe i'm seeing it wrong though) what's the min distance the hammock whipping can be from the end of the tree strap? seems like this might force you to have to hang from a larger span?
so the taper is just to get it through the eye of the needle or does it have another purpose?
nice job, i'm going to have to try this now as well
