Love splicing ropes!

Splicing ropes with a core of superfibre, like Dyneema® is quite easy and rewarding. This picture shows a twintail made for a catamaran made of 100% Dyneema® attached to a swiftcord cover with Cordura fibres for grip. In the Handbook Splicing Modern Ropes you will find a whole chapter with different techniques how to safe weight on your ropes. Tapering of a Dyneema rope is very easy and can make that your gennaker or spinnaker will stay full in light winds as well.
