  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 (http://www.neropes.com/Splicing%20Guide%20Individual%20Splices/Single_Braid%20Eye_Splice%20_Brummell.pdf), 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? (http://www.neropes.com/Splicing%20Guide%20Individual%20Splices/12_Strand_Single_Braid_End_For_End_Bury.pdf) 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. http://www.antal.it/ENG/rl40_ring__loop_en 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
