Great pictorial, thanks!
I must admit that I haven't read all 11 pages of this thread, but I thought this guys video was very helpful when creating a locked brummel with only one end of the cord is available. His application is winch line, but the only difference is the size of amsteel.
going to build ridge lines for my tarp (2x), using zing-it. Wondering if I need to use the locked brummel or a plain old eye splice? Same for the guy lines?
Pulled my new superfly and zing-it out of the box and am starting to put together my guy-lines.
With a locked brummel for a guy-line, how long of a bury do I need?
I just made some new guy lines for my new JRB 10x11. I only made the bury about 1". It's based purely on unscientific guessing.
This was awesome. Really helped a lot. I have one sling done so far.
Thanks for the tutorial. Did my first splice using amsteel tonight.
