I posted a question about end for end splices in the "fix it" forum, but I think the gear forum is more appropriate. (Actually I found a similar question in the fix it forum, but it got little response).

looking to splice tails on runners.... Have high mod core with cover (large diameter) that needs to splice "end to end" with small diameter double braid. In my case, it appears that the small diameter double braid is also a high mod core (not that it needs to be).

I have an existing old one but don't want to ruin it by ripping it apart....

See additional pics in the other thread!

I have 60 foot runner tails that I made with 60 feet of cover and used 35 feet of high end core leaving the rest empty. these replaced a large to small diameter splice that got caught in the clutch. I will do the exact same when I need to replace, works great.

... usually the tails on runners are made with a polypro single braid so you can tuck the cover of the runner into the tail's hollow.

Hope that helps.

Expose the core in the large line and cut off about 6 inches.
Expose the core in the smaller line and feed about 2 inches of the small core up the large core, whip through both core.
Milk the small cover down to the large core, whip in place.
Milk large cover over the lot and whip end in place.

Did this plenty of times and tested it to handle more than my weight (85kg) so as it is only a tail to pull on (not take load) I never had an issue.
