I found out what happens when you forget to cut the taper, before pulling the splice through. Was splicing zing-it, put the locked Brummel, went to pull the bury, and I couldn't get it to pull through. As much as I fought, it just wouldn't go. A forehead slap later, and then a now cut taper, and it pulled through easy. It had been a while since I had spliced, and forgot this one simple thing. The rest of my splices went fine......RR
