Competition? No way! Another person keeping the art alive.

You're right...the site is basic, but it shows people what they need to see. An example of your wares and a way to get a hold of you.

Time for the tiny splice picture!!!

love

You know guys, I've looked at the instructions and I can't figure it out. I think I need a video to at least learn the basics.

not a complaint but an observation.. is 'dynemma ' supposed to say 'Dyneema'?

I'd rather have critisism here than off other people. over here most folk don't know what dyneema is, they call it spectra, despite the cords being made with dyneema....weird

Over here all the rope comes in branded as Dyneema but everyone calls it spectra. Really dont know why???? D(yneema)12 gets called spectra. I know its a minor point but, unnnnggghhh

My understanding is the trade name in Europe is Dyneema and the trade name in the US is Spectra. The technology in both is UHMWPE.

I always called it Spectra because I first heard about it for making superlight slalom K1s. Kevlar/Spectra laminates were THE ticket in the early 90s.

Good luck Jamie, how would you go about getting insurance for splicing ropes used in our industry?

It's still a mystery to me, would it be PI insurance and would you need some kind of qualification?

Er, umm... technically... a slalom K1 is a whitewater kayak. They are fun on a big snowy downhill though. :)

...and go figure about them screwy Europeans! They're most contrary, confounding, intractable people I've ever met.
