Daho Medium Loop Splicing Needle (Spectra 80 to 200#)

Regular price $19.99 Sale OUT OF STOCK

DaHo Loop Splicing Needles are mainly used to insert one piece of spectra line inside another. They can also be useful in 'opening up' the inside of the hollow spectra line so larger tools can be more easily used. Instead of being hollow inside, the loop splicing needle has a wire loop attached to its trailing end. Below is a picture showing the detail of the DaHo Loop Splicing Needle ends.

The needle is inserted into the Spectra line being spliced, and the end of the other piece of spectra line is inserted into the needle's wire loop. As the needle is inserted into the line being spliced, the other piece of line is pulled along with it. When done, the needle is brought out of the line being spliced, and the end of the line attached to the needle wire loop is tightened to complete one side of the splice, or the terminating loop, as the case may be.

Typically, thicker walled tubing is used for these needles, as the focus is not on the needle's internal open size, but on strength, and the always important overall small size. The primary size of the needle is the OD, or Outside Diameter, and what sizes of spectra lines it would best be used with.

Our X-Small loop splicing needle is the only .025" OD in size and is the smallest spectra tool offered by anyone. It is built from a 304 stainless steel tube, as all our products, but because of its size, we have filled it with a solid 304 SS wire. This design gives it the strength of a tube, but it will not crease like a tube if it is ever bent. This needle can be bent and straightened without tube damage. It is the only one that can be used in the new 50# and below, smaller hollow spectra lines.

Shipping Costs

Shipping costs are determined by the size and dimensions of your order as well as your location. Just need something small? Maybe a lure or two? Your shipping charge could be VERY low - even under $3 for a single plug or other small item. You'll have options from least expensive to the very fastest for when your order just can't wait. Keep in mind many around New England, New York, and New Jersey will receive orders within 2 days even with our least expensive shipping.

Rod Shipping Charges

Most rods due to their size and packaging requirements will incur an additional "Oversize Shipping" charge of $9.99 to cover the expense of the rugged shipping tube needed to safely get your new fishing rod to you. Free shipping still applies. Some rods do not require the Oversize Shipping surcharge.
