I got my first spool of Zing-it in the mail today and decided to try doing a continuous loop splice over lunch. I got it done, but it is much tougher than I anticipated. I tapered the line ends and buried it about 2 inches on each side. In the process I really had to fight with it and rubbed off a fair bit of the orange color. I was wondering if this is normal or if there are some further tips I need to be aware of.
