Below, a simple splice is illustrated on 1/8" single braid spectra rope. There are other, more complicated but secure methods of eye splices. Some will not allow splicing of both ends of the rope as this example does. Whipping of the splice is required to ensure that the splice doesn't work its way out.
- Sharp scissors, razor blade or knife
- Fid: solid rod of appropriate diameter and length ( 3/32" Ti rod used in example)
- Fiber tape: cut width wise to allow for overlapping circumference of rope
