"Poor choice, snags"Gary Aitken on 4/12/2016 5:29:08 PM
Write your review here: These fids are a poor choice. They are not full circle and are open at the tip. This allows strands inside the sheath (braided outside) to catch on the tip of the line in the fid if the line is protruding slightly past the covered section, arresting all forward progress. In a tight rope, you don't know this has happened because the fid is difficult to move anyway. Brion Toss tool is far superior.

Write your review here: They work better than one other type, but still hard to get through tight rope without catching on the core. The fid my husband designed and made works better still. I like these for the larger rope, though. The hook does eliminate the taping on the outside of the fid.
What are you using this item for? Splicing horse tack and dog leashes
