    Good video! Better then the first one I watched, however next video you make ya might wanna try to watch your viewing box. A couple times your hands and the rope were out of view. Still though good video, easy to understand and slow enough to follow along.

    Clever use of the clear tape to eliminate the need for wire, loop pullers, fids, etc.

    Definitely more time consuming than using a piece of wire as a fid but it's nice to know I can do it in camp if I have to. Thanks for the vid!
