3/4" pelican matador, 25000 lb MBS
Both ropes 30ft, one rope got 2 eyes, other one is a dead eye (rope on right, ugly splice, I'm happy with the double eye on the left)

The scale of these splices wasn't apparent till I put a business card next to them!

Made the double eye for pulling my truck out (tow rope), have been using chain but figured it wasn't going to end well one day

spliced up some loopies out of 1/2 sampson double strand tennex with a DMM pinto rig and spacer.
made one shorter one for light rigging, and a longer one for drt top tie in, will use the adjustable friction saver with rings for ground set and retrieve.

Went to splice in a dead eye in my cougar, but the cross over point moved, and I have to re do it. Grrr

loopie before I lock stitched the end burys.
