    As I said not the best looking spliceClick image for larger version.

    Damn, that looks odd. Never done kernmantle splice before, so I don't know what it's supposed to look like. I'd send one out to break before I climbed in it tho.

    The splice puts two diameters of core and the cover all on one side to give it a lopsided look. The whipping I would do differently, this was done a few years back. It's a solid splice if the cover is loose enough to accept the bury. I'm not a big fan of this cord, just wanted to see if it was spliceable.

    I don't think I'd climb on it

    Hi Tommy, do you not like this particular splice that New England Ropes developed for the 11mm Fly rope, or is it just my redition of it?

    I've done only a couple kernmantle splices. Ugly, but strong.

    It 's hard to make something that lumpy and lopsided look good. Even the professionally done splices look off.

    Hiya Brocky,

    Nothing against what you've done, I'm just not a fan of that particular splice. There is a tidy splice that you can do for Aeris which looks like a conventional splice that I've always wondered if it would work for Fly but never tried it. I've got a Slaice on my Fly at the minute and that solves my problem! (Sorry for the late reply!)

    Thanks for the tip about the splice for Azeris rope. I'm guessing you mean the Marlowbraid splice. It looks a lot easier and better looking than the NER splice. I'll have to give it a try.

    I think it's the Marlow braid splice. I was sent some directions that were just for Areris specifically by never mentioned the name. Watching a video it looks really similar
