Howto integrate stopperball into line

Postby wavy navy » Tue Sep 10, 2019 8:40 pm

Hi, how can I integrate a stopper ball into the end of the first meter (the thicker lines) of the steering lines? I'd like to have them for reverse relaunch with handgloves...

Just put them into an "eight knot"?

Make a short extra line, connect them via handshake knot, and integrate the stopper ball?

Thx

Open up the weaving a bit on that point in the line and then put inside a small ball or a piece of rope and pull the outer rope tight again. Looks smooth and easy to adjust the place if you want to.
