Making these things is addictive.
It has always been my private conviction that any man who pits his intelligence against a fish and loses has it coming.
Ok, thanks. So, they are those from DaHo. I had the impression they were something slightly different and/or had a hook one end.
The loop is alot easier because the loop on the needle is stiff. So it opens the center of the line up to pull through. I bought the large one but for the 1.75 you could probably go with the medium size.
Im curious to see how much abuse it can take...
Just made my first locked brummel on the dynaglide from the group purchase and made one of the "opie ridgelines". Used flower arranging wire (green stuff).
It worked with some of tinkering. Im wondering if the open loop of the loop splicing needle will allow the end of the line you are trying to pull thru the sheath to come out because it does not squeeze the line end as it pulls thru like the wire?
I used to do alot of splicing of rope when I built ropes courses around the country, fun to get back to it.
Opie - how long is the large loop splicing needle you got? I'm wondering if it will fit in the field kit we carry.
