A good choice
By Old Poi Dog from Summerville, OR

It works really well, except for the two little rings cut around the shank. To attach a braided bridle to the bit with small leather laces, the braided rope really hangs up on the rings when I push the fid through it. PS, I was a sailor long before I started messing about on horses, so I know I'm a bit off the reservation here.

fid for splicing double braid rope
By Mac from Belhaven, NC

A plastic fid I was using gave me trouble since it snagged the interior fibers of the rope and then it became stuck in the core or cover. Aluminum fids, kept clean, are better for this. The core or cover end can be stuffed inside the hole at the tail of the fid and taped securely. Once you learn how to do this the splicing is easy.

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend to a friend
