IT can be done with a very thin splice tool that what I use. Takes some patience a a very thin splice tool.
Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.
Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
I've done it with the smallest size crochet hook that they make.
Wasn't fun ... but I did it
I forgot, Dylan had a very thin piece of copper wire that he used for splicing the zing-it. Enjoy the blisters.
Enjoy the elevation
I find a length of .024 stainless steel fishing leader wire bent in half answers well for burying 1.75mm lash-it; it’s an approach I picked up from a helpful post by Opie on another thread.

I have a needle with a long eye that I used for my mason line guy lines. (Video coming soon.) It worked, but you have to relax the weave to slip the needle through. Worked like a charm, though. But, everybuggy's right. When I went back to 7/64 amsteel, it seemed SO easy.
For the 7/64 amsteel, I'm using the wire threader that came with my tent pole replacement kit. Its long and thin, but retains its structure really well.
Heh heh. What's life without a little challenge now and again?

FWIW, I'm using a .022" piece of stainless fishing leader wire folded in half. Don't take too big of "bite" on the end you're trying to bury. That can make it harder to pull through. Oldgringo has a saying that in effect says if you don't have the end pull off every now and then, you're taking to big of bite.
what is everyone getting blisters from?? is it that abrasive?

I haven't had blisters but have kinda sliced my fingers on the thin line when pulling on it.
A single strand from some 240V household electrical cable.
Just bend it in half, and pinch the bent tip tight. Whalla - instant thin line splicing tool.
Very thin, stiff enough for splicing but has some nice flex to work with too on the ends. ie: easy to open up the end loop of the copper cable to feed the end of the splicing rope into for pulling back through too. (tapered rope of course)
What's this blister thing ??
No seriously, I'm an office type worker (soft hands) and don't get blisters splicing 1.75mm zing it at all
I am a GEAR JUNKIE and GRAM COUNTER !!
There, It's out. I said it, Ahh I feel better now
