No worries, JimmyB -- this thread has actually turned into a fairly broad and disheveled forum on splicing options and methods, which is dandy. My original question was about eye-splicing 12-strand Amsteel Blue -- a hollow (coreless), single-braid line. Since the manufacturer endorses a simple splicing technique, I'll take their word on it. Tho it might be fun to pull-test an offcut w/ practice splices, just see (unscientifically) how much it can take. If it can budge the tractor, it'll do for the backstay.
