With "Splicing Modern Ropes - Step by Step" you will learn all the important types of splicing for all modern ropes single braided as well as double braided with core and cover in the most vivid way with dubbed videos. Loops and soft shackles are also included.
From the basic skills such as taking out the core, working with the splicing needle, tapering and milking back to the highly complex splicing of modern high modulus fibre ropes, everything is shown in all detail.
The author, Egmont M. Friedl, produces the splices with his own hands in front of the viewer’s eye and comments on his doing during the splicing process.
