I have found the trouble with splicing old flying lines is that the weave goes tight and it is very difficult to loosen up a length of line for the bury. It is hard to loosen up the bury length evenly and keep the needle in the core. I suggest you pick a time when you need some quite therepy and spend time loosening up the strands before you attempt the splice.

If you find a good time efficient method please let me know.

It is almost night and day as for the ease of splicing between old and new flying lines.

Regards Herman.

I got it with a guitar string and some tape around the rope.
