I ran across this knotless line connector which I thought was sort of interesting. It's intended use is for with braided Spectra fishing
line. It's fast and stupid simple to use and if a fish
can't shake it I am thinking it's pretty secure.
I made a larger version out of 1/4" mild steel
which I have paired with 1/8" Dyneema
which I am planning on testing to breaking to see if it slips, which it is not supposed to do. I should have the capability to break the line but have no way of measuring what the load is.
If it doesn't slip I will go up in size and wonder if anyone out there has the equipment
required to pull test, who also wouldn't mind trying to break some samples I would send them?
I figure there are several potential applications, a standing rigging
terminal being one of them. The advantage being no splice so can be made quickly with little skill while also being adjustable.
