combination of these fibres.
Items required for this splice include…

How do I calculate the length of cut rope that I need to make a certain size finished loopie? I cannot find this info anywhere!
Here are the basic calculations which should get you the rough measurements that you need to go along with our instructions.
For a regular Loopie (using rope made with nylon or polyester fibre)
Cut Length =
The maximum extended inside length of the finished Loopie based on your requirements X 2 )
Bury Length for a polyester or nylon 12 strand rope = (Full Fid Length= Diameter of the rope X 21) x 1.25 X 2 )
2 full fid lengths
