    I spent most of my money on beer and women and hammocks.
    The rest I just wasted.

    I actually just got them in the mail today. Will put them to use shortly.

    Sounds like the same thing. I bought the large size and they look about right for the Zing It cord.
    I am not a gram weenie. , But Im starting to see the merits!!!

    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 reverse latch needle has a hook... And I got one of those too.



    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.
