Splicing 'Hi-Tech' Lines

I, for one, hate the idea of paying someone to make splices in my lines, when necessary and I have become reasonably good at dealing with most types of line as it really isn't very difficult although it can be somewhat difficult to explain. Accordingly, when I discovered the following videos, I though it would be worth sharing the information to others:


If you look at the side of the frame on YouTube, there are a couple of additional videos on other splices that are worth while as well.
