The rope I ordered came in Tuesday from Redden Marine a day earlier than promised and I've been playing around with it. I got 300ft of 7/64"Amsteel and a roll of Zing It.
First little experiment was an endless loop. Success! However when I was playing with the thing idly while talking to somebody it came apart. Not sure how, washouts spinning in my fingers and blammo it had separated. I made a new one.
Next I cut a 60' length of the 7/64" and did this little reverse splice to lock one end in. Very cool little trick rather than melting.
Next was to make the loop at the other end, again more success. Hooray, this is going better than I thought.
I am using a nail set, a cooking skewer and a piece of hay wire as tools.
Now onto the Zing-It.Well that was a whole other story, I need smaller tools for this I think. I did manage to reverse splice one and and get a nice loop at the there but holy moly was it tight. What sort of tools are others suing for splicing zing-it?
