Bee Line Eye & Eye Split Tail

This is one of those pieces of gear that are so simple and so practical that I wonder why it is not introduced sooner to every recreational tree climber. It is strong, easy to handle knots, not very expensive even with custom made splices and it lasts forever (it looks like).

I have one that Nick put together in our MS rendezvous a couple of years back and it still looks like new. This is the one with a double fisherman's loop tied on each end as a substitute for the spliced eyes. I also ordered one from Sherrill 's with the eyes stiched with their custom Grizzly machine and they are great. Very Strong and the splices are protected in a plastic clear enclosure. That one is a bit longer than usual (36- inches, I think) but I just make an extra wrap around the main climbing line and it works great with the Michoacan knot (Martin Knot). I recommend this piece of gear either the traditional one with knots tied or the custom spliced one from Nick or the Sherrill Grizzly splice. Great tool.
