Arlo, thanks. The printed splicing guide that came with the set does not have those instructions. But I notice now on page 2 and page 7, the illustration photo does show the hook end taped securely to braid.
Since I was already using it this way, there apparently is no chance of improvement. I'm considering buying a second set so they can be paired, and take up knitting instead. Or maybe I'll just pick up a set of the Samsons and finish the job on hand. (Which happens to involve 1/4" line, a tight nasty fit for this tool.)
