creating a loop in braided core line

Having done a lot of splicing of double braided line, I''ve learned that the single most important step in the process is to accurately mark the line per splicing instructions and to precisely follow those marks when extracting or inserting the components. When I began splicing, I had the same questions and did some experimenting. Sometimes I got lucky but, more often than not, I ended up wasting a couple of feet of line because either the core or cover ended up being too short. If you have poor instructions go to www.newenglandropes.com and find some excellent instructions with good illustrations.
