It is easier in a 'get the lines to do what I need sense, but for me it is much harder in a 'keep everything organized' sense. I figure about 15 minutes for a double braid splice, and about an hour for three stand.

My trying to splice brait is like watching an OCD monkey throwing poo. Everything starts off all organized but quickly turns into a **** storm no matter how it starts.
