Re: New England Ropes Synthetic lifelines?!?!
Yes, the WR2 is 100% dyneema core and dyneema cover. It can be spliced same as any other core to core (class II) splice. Dyneema will hold a splice just fine but the burry needs to be 72 x the diameter of the rope for it to hold.
I have a sample of it and I must say the white looks very sharp. I do hope people look into it for replacing their life lines. It's not exactly cheap. If you want cheap than the single braid in 1/4" will work great for 5+ years and is easy to install. I've done it on a few boats.
