The road to success is always under construction.
I found another site for tree surgeons where they have gone into great detail regarding testing Locked brummels, if anyone is interested. http://www.arboristsite.com/arborist-101/71341.htm
I for one will continue to use a Locked brummel rather than going to the added hastle of stitching or whipping the ends
i take the end, to be inserted in the bury, & grit it between my teeth, back about 3/4 - 1"
lay the wet frayed end on the cutting board
slice it, w/ a 9-11 hijacker's weapon, at an angle
i do not include the tapered portion in my bury formula total, it just makes the bury neater looking
then i thread the end thru the eye of a #16 tapestry needle
the blunt end of the tapestry needle slips right up the middle of ZING-IT quite easily
just an old man's 2¢ worth

Swoody I like your sentiment. I use tapestry needles also, bury handy they are too.
That is my Tuppeneth.
I use tapestry needles too but have not tried it on zing-it before. I'll have to give it a try.
