Same here! Or one can splice an eye in the Dyneema and cow-hitch it to the thimble if you want to be able to remove it nondestructively.

Re: Anchor Line Chafe Protection

Why not just cow hitch it to a loop in the nylon? Or if you're worried about the dyneema cutting the nylon, do like I do on my spare rode-make the dyneema loop big enough and do a prusik hitch. My rode is 7/8 and I don't want that thimble banging around, your snubber is probably smaller, tho.
