Someone suggested floral wire - I bought a roll of it in 24 GA and it works like a charm. I have been splicing 1.75 Zing It by cutting only one yarn an inch from the end for a taper. Made a CRL with a loop on one end, a bury on the other and four prussic loops. No blisters!
can you bury 1.75 lash it? Help!!
I found a round point shovel and loose dirt helps in the bury! Frustration solved!
(as others have mentioned----small wire to use a a fid)
The trees are drawing me near, I've got to find out why?
Those gentle voices I hear, explain it all with a sigh.

Even duct-tape can't fix stupid.
I never tapered any of the smaller lines I used.
One trick that helps whether you taper or not is to turn the tail back towards the standing part so it helps shoehorn it in. Kinda like a funnel.

Like all things hammocks... once you get it, it's easy. I'll leave the DIY UQ out of that statement. Thanks for the help all. check out my lash-it whoopie to shock cord.

mason line for a prussic? i like that. is it strong enough for tarp on a CRL?
The gene pool needs a life guard.
I have found braided masons line strong enough for tie outs. I think it would do fine as a prussic on a CRL. Its worth a try but I believe that stretch would be the biggest drawback. I tried to use it as a SRL in my DIY HH Clone. Defeated the purpose of a SRL with all the stretch it had.
My tool of choice for splicing small line is a piece of doubled 24 gauge wire. (aka Cat 6 network cable) I pulled out a wire from a spool I have and stripped the insulation off...
I've spliced braided mason's line quite a bit, even made a whoopie sling for fun...
A lit magnafier or +2.00 reading glasses are a must-have... That and cut out the coffee before braiding.....
