    Double Braid nylon ??

    I have access to a remnant spool of 1/4" double braid nylon I am thinking of making my suspension from. A couple quick questions if anyone knows...

    1) I know making an eye splice is different than Amsteel ( but doable) but is there a way to make a sliding bury like you can with Amsteel?

    2) Best Knot for making a loop? Good Ole Double fisherman's work OK?

    you'll need a single braid make a whoopie i believe

    nylon is one of the worst materials for a suspension, you will have signifigant stretch with a nylon line that size
