    Atta boy!!! Nothing wrong with that at all!!! Yeah the final bury is the hard part. Personally I've found the pulling and bouncing is better than milking it.

    Using a soft mallet to loosen a tight throat is key IMO on the final burry.

    Nice splice man! Throat looks a bit chunky, but not crazy. Used rope is a real s.o.b. splice game is only going to get easier for you.

    Yup, I agree. Shock load (by hand) the shit out of the final bury to help out. Won't damage the rope a bit.


    I learned to splice double braid from Brion Toss years ago. Best instructor out there and I highly recommend his splicing DVD's. They are very clear and easy to understand. Much better than Sampson or New England rope instructions.

    Here's a few more that are ready to be break tested. 2x Samson Tangent and my first Tachyon splice!
