On my Ride Engine slider bar, I splice the line through itself, then through the newly created loop. It's a kinda spliced square knot. Doesn't slip as much as a figure 8 or standard square knot, and you can get it pretty close to the bar. I usually use a #2 philips screwdriver to make the hole.

I get about the same life out of the "Nak style" spliced line on my Dynabar, which means I go through a few lines a year on each.

Hood River Hobbies has plastic super glue with a brush, $7 for 1/2 oz. I also have a bottle of their "foam safe" super glue for beach side board repairs.

I tried this out yesterday and was quite happy with it. Clove-hitch on the ring which is easy to tighten and doesn’t have a ton of slip. Then the overhand to secure it. Folds nicely back into the bar sheath and I didn’t notice any slippage after using.

Thanks bigjohn. You have inspired me to find my fid and get after it...

Did you use the eye in the end of the splice in which you fold the spectra over & penetrate the splice to capture a little tiny shackle (ala dynabar) and use the hardware as a stopper, so you only have to tie one stopper knot?


Yo Hoe-Toe,

Just re-read your message and I realized I had misread your original post.

I made a whole bunch of the the Center Line depower ropes using NAK's method. I did this years ago and made about about a dozen all at once. I haven't burned threw my stash yet.

That will teach me to skim posts....


Hey bigjohn—no worries.

I’ll be the guinea pig. If I never post again, you’ll know it didn’t work out well. 😀

Nak’s awesome DIY tutorial: http://www.nwkite.com/forums/t-31373.html&highlight=


I got to test it, finally... Smile

It worked great. Minimal stretch, plus it slid much more smoothly thru my dynabar hook’s sheave than the old piece of 1/4” or 5/16” hollow braid I had been using. No visible wear... I used 1/8” Amsteel blue, and I terminated the end opposite the shackle using an oysterman’s knot (thanks G-man).

I think this is the way to go for a DIY Dynabar replacement slider line.

Happy rigging!
