Braided and High Modulus (aka Parallel-Core) Rope splicing can be a daunting, frustration task, if you are using conventional tools and instructions. That's why the Splicing Wand was invented, a tool that makes quick, easy work of tucking.
The Splicing Wand is basically a long tube containing a hidden snare. You slide the tool into the rope, grab the end you want to tuck, and slide the tool out. There's a specially-shaped tip on the tube, to keep you from snagging yarns along the way, an ingenious mechanism in the handle, to hold the tube in place while you work. You can clamp the tool in a vise if you want, leaving both hands free to deal with the rope, there's no taping or un-taping, no fid lengths to decipher,and very little physical effort needed to tuck.
For professionals it's the tool of choice. Easy to follow instructions for the double-braid eye splice included.
The Splicing Wand comes in six sizes - the inches noted are for rope diameter. The smallest we make is Micro, then Small, Medium, Large, X Large...and extra long/ but with a medium width tube -Arborist. (This is a very specialized size for a very specialized set of splices...most arborists will do well with our regular wands). You can get an idea of the diameter of each of the wands by looking at the photo above - I put a pencil and a ruler in the photo to give perspective.
Book - Basic Braided Splices -Book 5 in the Working Rope Series by Brion Toss
Here is your key to demystifying Braided Rope Splicing. In this volume of the Working Rope series, Brion Toss and Margie McDonald bring to you the distilled results of decades of experience with thousands of splices. Here are the tips, techniques, and shortcuts that professionals use, along with valuable information on the characteristics of each type of rope you’ll be splicing.
There are no confusing ‘fid lengths’ here, just dimensions based on rope diameter, or on marks braided into the rope at the factory. And the purpose or every mark is explained, so you can comprehend each splice, from start to finish.
You’ll find instructions for splicing conventional ropes, like Dacron and Nylon. But this volume also covers splices for the new High-Modulus lines like Spectra and Vectran. There are even instructions for making High-Modulus rope grommets.
Make no mistake, splicing is still an art, requiring patience and dedication on the part of the splicer. But with these instructions, you’ll be taking a giant step towards mastering braided rope splicing.

Point Hudson Phid,Large
For 3-Strand & Mega Braid rope. This is the world's second most expensive fid; the most expensive being those fids that cut and disturb your rope as you use them!
The Point Hudson Phid makes a smaller hole in the rope than ordinary fids, so a smoother fairer splice results, with no hockles or sliced yarns.
The Phid is round and polished with no sharp edges to damage the rope fibers. It is easy to enter, even into hard-laid rope. The Phid is designed with an artful “cutaway 148;, so you can leave it in the rope while tucking the strand; no more yanking and dragging to get the strand home.
The Phid is truly a beautiful tool, a marvel of functional elegance. The Point Hudson Phid comes in two sizes - Small works rope 5/16-5/8; Large works rope 3/4-1 1/8

Keep your rope ends from fraying - finish the job - whip them with a palm and needle whipping or a double constrictor knot (pg. 78 in the Rigger's Apprentice). Mark them distinctly and traditionally with your choice - Dark Red, Dark Green, Deep Blue, White, or Gold. Also great for tying up very small packages.
