  1. Thanks everyone for contributing to answering my questions. I've learned more than I had expected. I'll try to remember to post pictures of my application of the knowledge I've gained. Christine
  2. Once again, Thanks. This is the information I was hoping to learn. Perhaps I am going overboard with the details but if nothing else, I am learning quite a bit. Fair Winds, Christine
  3. Wow, Thanks for the informative reply to my question. In order to make sure I understand your suggestions I looked at your website (very informative too!) and searched for the following online: "constrictor splice" and "yale loop" splice. Unfortunately I could not find any other references to these that applied to the hollow braid dyneema type rope. Do you have a suggestion for a book or other reference that would help me with these? Finally, after the constrictor splice is made around the ring, instead of finishing it with a bury splice and making an eye splice on the end of the end of the remaining line (, could the line from one side be passed through the other to achieve the desired throat angle and then join the two ends with an end-to-end splice? ( Thanks for your help, Christine
  4. Hi all, New member here with a question about the construction of the Low Friction Ring on a Dyneema loop. For a winter time project, I've decided to learn to splice Dyneema lines working up to making soft-shackles and my own low-friction rings with the dyneema loops. e.g. Can someone explain to me how these are made? Is a continuous loop first made and then seized using dyneema whipping twine to secure the ring? Thanks for your help and for letting me join. Christine
