SPLICE EASY

SAIL - - Experience Under Sail -

There seems to be no end of uses for Dyneema line on sail­boats, and although it’s eas­ier to splice than most kinds of rope, a help­ing hand is al­ways ap­pre­ci­ated. Bar­ton’s EasyS­plice can make eye splices in sin­gle braid Dyneema in sec­onds, not min­utes—ideal if you’re mak­ing up fiber life­lines, or whiling away the af­ter­noon mak­ing soft shack­les. The light­weight tool comes with in­ter­change­able rods for line up to 5mm. $45. Bar­ton Ma­rine, bar­ton­ma­rine.com
