set the kicker/downhaul to maximum off then leave enough to be able to reach it and pull comfortably while hiking out

I see some of you are struggling to splice the marlow excel elite and excel racing that has a technora/poly blended cover.

It is easy.

Measure your continuous control line length and mark where you want the two ends to join.

Add 300mm for cover bury onto each end.

From the point where your join is going to be, move 400mm up the line on each side and tie slip knots. Make them tight, this is so you donít loose cover/core tension.

At the end of each side remove 420mm of core from each side.

With the ends you wish to join, taper the last 100mm then wrap this tightly with a tapering length of brown 1Ē parcel tape.

Find the point about 120mm from your join point, stick a folded 0.8mm piece of welding wire/seizing wire up the empty cover from the point where the core finishes, exit at your join mark. Hook the last inch of your parcel tape through the wire, pull the whole thing out repeat the other side then stitch at the join and trim the ends off.

Tapering the cores, the length of the bury and the use of brown parcel tape make this so much easier.

Prep time = 15 minutes

Time per splice = 5 minutes

With the introduction of purpose built continuous ropes I'm not sure why you would ever try to splice Excel racing/elite
