It might be easy but it is not the way professionals do it, not the way the rope manufacturers do it.
So if the pros all do it a different way and this one guy does it a unique easy way it makes one wonder why?
Has anyone done strength tests and all the other tests that would be appropriate.

Did I read him right where he says to cut the cover off after pulling out the core?
