Lock-stitching eye splice in 3-strand nylon?
I can't seem to locate specific info on this, so I'm starting to guess a lock-stitch may be unnecessary. I'm creating a bridle for a drogue using 50' of 5/8" 3-strand nylon and placing thimbles in the ends. I've completed them, but I'm wondering if a lock-stitch is needed. The thimbles are fairly tight, so I'm not worried about them falling out. Does anyone have an opinion on this?
