5.0 out of 5 stars good general kit
this kit has everything you need to make most splices you will need on a sailboat,and the tube is handy to store the kit in,but you may want to make one round with some tape to keep the lid one or the lid will come off and it all ends up rolling around in the locker

2.0 out of 5 stars iron fids
The fids had such a shallow hole drilled into them that not enough rope can be inserted to hold the rope as you thread the fid through the rope to create the spice. The items included are all adequate but the fids sure could use improvement.

Great splicing kit. The metal fids are definitely the way to go. I have seen similar kits got twice the price elsewhere.

Did the job splicing double braided rope. Come with instructions and there are plenty of videos on the web to help you.

3.0 out of 5 stars Incomplete Splicing Kit, September 26, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Samson Rope Splicing Kit (Fids 1/4-Inch, 1/2-Inch) (Sports)
This Samson Rope Splicing kit is very good. I was able to make the splice in some 1/4" double beaid and it was pretty fast. The only problem that I have with the kit is that it was missing the fid for 1/2" when it arrived in the mail. The vendor affiliated with Amazon.com was Baileys. I don't think I would order anything from them again since they sent me an incomplete kit.
