12 strand splice
An allowance of 60x rope diameter should be made for the overall length of
To optimise the efficiency of a soft eye splice (without a thimble), the angle
formed at the neck of the splice should be 30° or less, meaning that when flat,
the length of the eye must be 2.7x the diameter of the object over which the
splice will be used.
A splice will normally increase the diameter of the rope between 1.5x and 1.75x
