Well Worth It - 03/06/2017

The splicing class was set up well with a class lecture that was combined with hands on learning. Nick and the tree stuff staff are great teachers and really take the time to help you if you have questions along the way. I highly recommend attending the class if you are interested in splicing.

Very informative. As a beginner this series is well worth the money. Nick explains things very clearly. The tips and timed splices are great. I learned patience and persistence are key for beginners. I look forward to more videos
Fantastic Resource - 12/30/2016
This series is invaluable to anyone who wants to custom build their own gear. Good sound and video quality, and Nick is easy to follow. I don't mind listening to him speak, either... A trait i wish some of my college professors had. The biggest value to me is knowing i've done my splicing correctly, and i can trust my gear.
Growing up sailing, 4x4ing, and flying gliders, I've had some experience splicing. This takes it to another level. It is no replacement for having specific manufacturer's instructions, but my boss' 9 year old daughter could do any of these splices after watching the videos with me. Nick clearly has a great deal of experience to draw upon, and has some awesome tips and tricks to share. I bet even the most seasoned splicer could learn something from this series.
It is also worth noting that there is minimal product placement in these videos. Most splicing can be done with home made tools, or no tools at all. A short flash of text shows you what he's using if you're interested in purchasing some specific tools.
They've recently cut the price in half, in which case i wish i could give 6 stars.
Very well done - 12/17/2016
There are many splicing videos on you tube but this is a well put together series and I was very impressed. Nick is a great teacher and explains every detail of what he is doing. It is designed ffor the beginner to the more advanced and will take a beginner and make them an advanced splicer. I got a bag of rope and it was all hollow braid rigging rope. I thought it would be simple being hollow braid it was trickier than I thought but Nicks tricks got me through it. I made a thunder sling a little different than Nick Bonners but it worked out just as well and definitely not as pretty. It's made out of 1/2" Tenex Tec and I think I will make the other end into a whoppie. sling. Great Splicing series I would highly recommend it.
good instruction - 10/11/2016
Great teaching tool for splicing instead of trying to use the printed manufacturer instructions alone. It would be nice if there was an occasional Q&A follow up session for issues or specialty splices.
