    The way AutumnUL does it seems like the best way if you plan to stick to the Becket hitch. Thatís my plan now that you mentioned it.

    I just made another set of CL's using Jeff Myers Diamond knot technique. I don't see myself using anything other than the Becket and maybe a whoopie from time to time, so this is going to be my go-to. I made eight inch CL's with two inch thumb loops. I am going to make them again but make a six inch CL with a two inch thumb loop.

    If anyone want the ones I just made, you can have them... PM me..

    Anne Marie AutumnUltralight, does such smooth and accurate splicing. Really neat work, Iím impressed.
    Iíve never seen this splicing maneuver before. I wonder if Anne Marie invented this technique.
    And I wondered if this can be made from a single piece of amsteel with a different technique??
    One way is to form small pull loop and make a diamond knot, then continue up to far end. Make a locked brummell and bury loose ends.
    Or another technique, form small pull loop and make a locked brummell to hold pull loop in place.
    Go to far end, locked brummell and splice bury loose ends.
    This second Phantom guess might not hold at locked brummell thatís all by itself and having to be in becket hitch. Might be too much stress on locked brummell with no backup.
    Third Phantom guess. Use a regular continuous loop and tie an overhand knot to form pull loop.
    Continuous loop might have to be a bit larger to account for pull loop and overhand knot.
    I got so many guesses thereís bound to be many Phantom fails
    Without trying new ideas there would be nothing new, ever.
    Again Iím impressed with your outstanding innovation, and highly skilled neat production!
    Wow

    Over the past two days I've used Phantom Guess One and Two above..

    I did just the locked brummel to create the thumb loop. Hung directly from the locked point. It held, but quickly moved to the diamond knot.

    The diamond knot option seems to work best, plus I like having the knot as the basis for other suspension options. When I hung on these I did so on the thumb loop first and that set the diamond knot well and true. Then I hooked a whoopie hook under the diamond on both strands and set it from the other side. I dare to say it isn't going anywhere.

    I like the idea of using both the locked brummel and the diamond knot... I'll try that today.
