    This set is a must have for anyone splicing rope or learning to splice rope. It comes with a nice tubular case for all the tools with red vinyl end caps. Another nice feature are the short fid length marks engraved in each fid. Very nice to have.

    If you are learning how to splice double braid, I've got to suggest the "splicing double braid" video on Youtube by the late Andy Wall, Professional Rigger. He gives an easy to follow, step-by-step, demonstration on how to splice. It's how I learned.

    Works well w/Samson LS, not w/NE Ropes

    Bought these to learn splicing. Bought NE Ropes StaSet 1/4 and 3/8" (WM house brand). Tried to do eye splice for halyards and control lines. Fids would not pass through cover, especially if core was also present, no matter how much I tried to "bunch" up the cover to increase its diameter. I thought it was my technique until I easily did a splice with 5/16" Samson LS. I think the diameter of the fids is too large for StaSet or the StaSet cover just has a tighter weave than LS (I noticed that the StaSet cover has 3 strands/weave whereas LS has 2). I ended up creating my own fid with seizing wire to work with StaSet.

    Go with the Selma kit instead

    By David Owens

    About Me Casual/ Recreational

    Pros

      Cons

      • Difficult To Use

      Best Uses

        The rope tends to separate from the fid on the final pass of the eye splice. The pusher is supposed to assist with this but is of little help. I purchased the Selma fid kit (produced in Norway and sold by West Marine) and found it much easier to use. I've not seen the Selma kit in any West Marine stores - had to purchase online.

            Comments about Double Braid Splicing Kit:

            There is a reason they sell pre-spliced line! Just kidding. Line splicing is something I wanted to learn to do. Each splice is getting a little better. The fids seem to do their job well and the instructions are easy to follow. Line splicing to me is just something that takes practice. I don't know enough about what I am doing to give the kit five stars but I am very pleased with my purchase.

              This kit covers all of the most common rope sizes used by recreational and 'local' commercial boaters.
              The instructions for splicing are complete! With little practice anyone can make functional and professional looking splices!

                Comments about Double Braid Splicing Kit:

                I used this kit to attach some hardware on the end of several halyards made from 1/4" rope. Took a little practice to get the end of the rope to stay in the end of the fid, but mostly an issue of familiarity and not workmanship. I didn't find the pusher all that useful, but maybe on larger rope it plays a more important role. My halyards are now spliced and look great, and I learned a good bit about doing that work myself.

                      The fids work very well but .. the instructions Samson puts out are awful. I recommend the New England Ropes [@] video like another reviewer did.To make the fids run easier I polished them, concentrating on the tips. I would like a second, shorter pusher, guess I'll have to make that.
