I still think that New England make the best three strand.

Great videos knothead. I've used a eye splice(without the metal thimble) on the rope to chain splice thinking that just maybe the rope might be less prone to chafe without the separation of the 3 strands when passing through that last chain length. Just a hunch on my part. Would like to hear your thoughts. Also when looking at the defender web site for splicing services I noticed that they coat the splice with some sort of anti chafe protection. I can't seem to find what that product is.
