Opie, this is a great little tutorial. I tried a nacarabiner yesterday with a very similar tutorial you did, and for some reason the loop on the end doesn't slide...at all. I like this one because while it uses a bit more line (the other thread said 12"), I'm confident the bury won't pull out because of the knot at the end. And it feels really heavy duty, even with 7/64.
Now, to get out and do something, or continue splicing . . . addicted :-)
