I think he uses multiples of the rope diameter instead of fid lengths. Regarding the NER Uni-fid, it seems to work better than the traditional fid (with pusher) but the hook is a weak point. I've broken two of the small ones after only half a dozen splices each. I just bought Brion Toss' wand but haven't tried it yet.
