    I was messing around and found out with a little work I was able to open up Izor 65lb solid and splice it to 60lb hollow Toro Tamer. I was thinking about glueing the connection with tac glue and giving it a shot but the solid only has 6 strands and was worried it might not hold. What do you guys think? Thanks in advance

    If you want to splice Solid into Hollow this is how to do it:

    Take the Solid and double the line for a 4' section - then take a latch needle and pull that double section of Solid up into the Hollow.

    Once the Solid is pulled 4' into the hollow poke the needle through the hollow and remove the latch needle.
    -Then tie an overhand knot where the Solid Entered the Hollow and you're done.

    You can put a drop of superglue, but it is not necessary.
