    LOOP in synthetic

    There was some discussion on mending /splicing /synthtics so i decided to post up some pictures showing a step by step process for a loop . Same technique applys for joining two sections together.


    PICTURE #1 SHOWS REMOVING 4-5 strands



    PICTURE #2 SHOWS TAPING the end to a taper.




    PICTURE #3 by using the end of a pen it simplifies threading the tapered end thru the centre rope




    PICTURE #4 shows threading the tapered end up about 20" thru centre




    PICTURE #5 shows the line pulled tight over the inner section so as to "grab "it




    PICTURE #6 Shows the section where the two pieces join being whipped with a waxed string.



    By using some shrink tube over this finish it will help to finish it a little.

    Cheers.

    you remove a few strands / or cords so the end can be tapered to allow it to be threaded up the centre of the rope. The rope used in the picture for example is 3/8" outside diameter not sure what the inside is.
    Something interesting that i heard the other day about the synthetic rope is in Winch challenge events 3/8" is considered to small most participants use 11 to 12 mm as it is closer to the actual breaking strength of wire cable in that size. ( not listed working strength ) It can get a it complicated at times when you start taking all this stuff into account. Personally when i got a synthetic for myself some time ago i bought a 5/16" and i was never really comfortable with the size / getting of topic here.
    Cheers.

    Looks to me like you missed the stitching step at the end of that process...

    Otherwise your line could pull apart... all you've got there is a chinese finger puzzle.

    The Stitch braiding is not neccesary but the stitch and whip finish at the loop connection is well advised . In fact stitching as shown in your link has no real value to the splice.
    Cheers.

    Then why is it "well advised"?

    I have no idea why some one would say it is well advised. Although when using the chinese finger knot it is neccesary to make sure you you use a long enough section . Unless of course you use a locking splice. in which case you can use a far shorter length of rope end ( 8" to 12" ) and you do not need to whip finish the loop connection.
    Cheers.
