I am honing my newfound skill of creating an eye-splice for my double braid rope
. Most recommend sewing a lock stitch to secure the splice. So I purchased a leather palm and some "Repair Needles" like the ones pictured.
So far, I have bent the the 2-larger needles and broke the eye of a smaller needle. Based on a Google
search, the repair needles I purchased look to be fairly common and are made in China
I need a needle, made a little stronger to withstand the pressure of pushing it through the line. Any recommendations? Tried searching this Forum already, but my apologies in advance if this has been discussed, which I am sure it has
Are the needles in the other picture what I need?
