Just watched a great video of Brion Toss splicing a piece of 1x19 wire on YouTube. He is truly a wire rope magician, with that 1x19 splice.

Brion is a natural teacher and one can see why he is the premier traditional yacht rigger around - even if he still insists on splicing horizontal. I thought it was just a stage he was going through, but alas I think he is too far gone to ever recover ;)

I ask you which way looks easier and more comfortable:

Splicing vertical

You be the judge.

As is said in the orient: "He acts like a sleeping man reaching for his pillow." :cool:
