Re: Eye splice in double braid
What you can't tie a bowline in double braid?
Actually I'm following this thread with interest. Splicing is an area that I know next to nothing about, but would like to.
Earlier on pdqaltair made some great arguments against splicing and promoted the bowline.
I just wanted to try the splice. But so far I wouldn't call it 'fun'.
