I agree with you on this. I use what is known as a "Lineman's Rolling Hitch" which is a lot different than any that I've seen on knot sites and in knot books. I do a lot of three strand rope splicing for my fellow YC members and I very seldom ever need a Marlin Spike unless the lays were made up too tight from the factory.
