If you wanted to splice (fingertrap) a length of spectra (1000) into an existing length of line, how long would you make the overlap, to retain a reasonable proportion of the original strength? I presume a bar tack (at each end of the overlap?) would be needed for security?
For an eye or loop the buried measurement of line is aprox 3" to maintain the strength. For a straight splice like at the cascade it is aprox 6". Hope that is what you are looking for. (These are rough numbers based on your question)
