Splicing Braid

Can anyone point me to directions on how to eye splice a fuzzy braided rope with a three core inner? The cover is braided polyester

I failed to do that splice and opted for seizing it instead. If you want to give it a try, Google for it using Samson as extra keyword because they make rope like that.

Also, to have any chance, the rope must be brand new, never stretched yet.

ciao!

Re: Splicing braid

Try the SparTalk forum on Brion Toss' website. Someone there has undoubtedly accomplished the splice you are looking for.

Re: Splicing braid

I could never get that splice right ! messed it up everytime! So I whipped it, mostly I used waxed whipping cord. not as pretty as a sailmakers whipping, but a little easier, and almost as long lived. Just my 2 cents Bob and Connie

Re: Splicing Braid

I want to make a sliding loop (like the one on a soft shackle) at the end of a line. Is there a line I can do that with other than deneema?

Any single braid line will work, but the eye won't slide as well. Polyester Tenex work a pretty well.

Re: Splicing Braid

This topic just came up within the last week, as it was befuddling the person trying to splice it. I think that the header involved Kernmantle line, & perhaps Seaworthy Lass started the thread. So you might try there.

Re: Splicing Braid

Personally, I have no use for braid cover, 3-strand core. The core will rotate under load, the cover will not, resulting in hockles.

Get different line. the core and the cover must have similar properties.
