That kit will get you pretty well into you're splicing needs. If you can find one with polished fids, those are better but harder to find. The real small stuff, 1/4" or less, is really hard to splice depending on how tight the cover is. For 1/8" stuff I just tape the end of the line into a point and push it through. Well, that's for another thread.

In the kit I print out other splicing techniques and stick them in the tube with the fids, pusher, etc. Along w/ a sharpie and a lighter to burn ends until you have a chance to whip them.
