Anyone who has ever struggled trying to make splices in single braid Spectra will quickly see how great this tool will be. We saw them and immediately ordered a batch from the manufacturer in Amsterdam. This is a great complimentary tool for our Selma Fids. Here is the company boilerplate:
As the development of fibers for ropes has taken off in the last decades, new splicing tools are required. Our pulling needles are complimentary to the conventional fids. The unique double needle clamps your line and makes it easy to pull through. Especially in situations where little space is allowed and for working with thinner ropes.
The D-splicer set comes with four needles and an exchangeable handle, packed in a tube for easy storage. Just unscrew the handle and change the needle matching the rope diameter you work with.
The set comes with four needles of two different sizes:
• two needles of ø 1 mm x 24 cm, suitable for the splicing of ropes < ø 2 mm
• two needles of ø 1.5 mm x 26 cm, suitable for the splicing of ropes ø 2-4 mm
