Re: Attach Rope to Becket?

I thick a splice would be most appropriate. A short splice in 3 stand would allow blocks to ''chocka block' but braided line splice would require some clearance in the sheave and should be well stitched and seized to prevent working out the spice with constant flexing as it runs through the sheave.
