Re: Eye splice in double braid

As has been said, get some line to practice on because it takes a few tries to get it right. Follow all the instructions exactly and if you can get the fancy splicing fids/wands, it'll make it easier although the final "milking" stage is the hardest--PURE WORK. Get some good leather gloves and a vice to do this final stage.
