Re: Dynema to dacron splice?
it does depend how much load the tail will see if the backstay goes direct to a winch then the splice will have a lot of load, if the line goes through, say 8 to 1 blocks and the tail is just there to cleat the line and for your hand grip there is not that much load on the splice.
In the case of running backs where the working end is short adding a cover to the line is a good way to go.
