My hint is to pay the $25 bucks to have a rigger do it. lol

I've taught myself to do an eye splice in double braid, but I did have the rigger splice my new VPC halyards since its a difficult one, and I'd probably spend more on the fids and line that would be sacrificed learning the new splice than just paying to have it done.
