I second BPs request for an eye splice video.
I've completed my test line and my results are remarkably, er, decent. I did introduce a slight twist (maybe 1/8th), which is mainly noticeable because I'm dealing with just a few feet of line, but I think I can avoid that next time.
Next stop, the real thing. I'll figure 5 fids loss.
Thanks again--the video was a huge help.
