Because there can never be to much DIY I have used New England Ropes 5/64 Dyneema for SRL's and continuous loops and wanted a better "fish tool" for splicing. My main fish tool is a little thick for the 5/64 and I have read how a lot of people use guitar strings so I thought I would give it a shot. Stopped in a local music store and told him what I was using it for...He reached behind the counter and handed me this and said it was extra inventory...no charge. I like that price.
The blue plastic needle is what I use to pick my threads out for the tapered ends. Overall it worked fine but if I do another one, I will go one size larger for the additional stiffness.
