Loopie Sling made with Dyneema
A Loopie is an adjustable loop sling.
These splicing instructions are intended for use with SupreemX-12™ made with Dyneema® fibre and other 12-strand ropes made with high-modulus fibres such as Vectran®, Technora® and Kevlar®. A Dyneema Loopie Sling requires a longer length of rope to be buried because of the extreme strength and slickness of Dyneema fibre.
Items required for this splice include…
- Rope and matching fid
- Measuring tape
Here are the basic calculations for determining the rough cut length that you need to go along with these instructions.
For a Loopie using a rope made with Dyneema© fibre or any other high modulus fibre…
The Cut Length =
The maximum extended inside length of the finished Loopie based on your requirements X 2 )
Bury Length for a Dyneema, Vectran, Kevlar or Technora 12 strand rope = (Full Fid Length= Diameter of the rope X 21) x 2.5 X 2 )
2 full fid lengths
