    As for untieing, OK, I probably need to go that route. I guess I will have to start by cutting open the nylon cover, and seeing what there is to undo. And of course, a new order and more shipping to get a few feet of spyderline.

    Although, I guess if I'm going to cut open the knot cover and try to untie/retie a knot there, there is no need to worry about replacing the rope. So I could just cut the rope past the point of attachment to the buckle, and go in and untie later if I needed to add a new rope. Then again, I bet this spectra and spiderline is expensive, so I might be better of ordering just a few feet and doing a replace.
    1, 2, 3, 4. Those are the before/after pics that Grizz posted of the knots under the HH cover. Also, here is a pic of what mine looks like when replaced with Spyderline.

    If you're just looking for enough Spyderline for that mod, don't order it. I've got enough left from my last order that I'll give you. PM an address.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    Very educational pics! Well, it looks like it's time to do some untying! If this keeps up, you guys will actually have me approaching a sewing machine. And talk about not going back, I suspect, once you get bit by that bug.

    That bug has recently bit me. Just finished my noseeum snakeskins. And I swore I'd never touch a sewing machine.

    You are sooooo right on about that one!

    I never thought I be friends with the little old ladies at the fabric shops; not really my thing. But, I am now. Found out one of them lives 2 blocks from me and has offered instruction when needed. I don't think she has any idea what kind of mess she has gotten herself into.

    I'm afraid I can see this fate in my future.
