50 ft. of Amsteel just came in the mail, its whoopie time...but after 2 hours of struggling, resulting in blisters on my fingers and a pretty gnarly fleshwound in my palm meat, courtesy of a pair of wire cutters (dont ask me why i was using wire cutters, lesson learned.)...i only have one fixed eye around my hammock, with nothing else to show. I tried to bend a hanger down into a splicing tool, but thats obviously not the way to do it. I also tried a guitar string, but I cant get it back through, as the backbend holding my bury grabs the amsteel fibers. I'm using 8 strand, as opposed to 12 in the pictorials, does that have something to do with how stinking frustrating this is? Miserable first DIY experience thus far, help me!
