Comments about Uni Fid for Splicing Braid:
The product has a nice feel, and New England ropes is an outstanding company with great instructions. While the instructions they provide are quality and helpful to relative beginners, the hooks on the end of the fids are a nightmare to deal with. Alternate brands, with individual fids, will not take significantly more room but will spare the aggravation caused by the hooks. I bought this after learning to splice lines because I thought it would make me feel like a sailor; this product just made me cuss like one.
