Default Splicing is stronger than crimping or swaging.

I finish up the splice with a lightly crimped sleeve to contain the cable strands usually but you can use heat shrink too.

Do a search for cable splicing on the tips board. I'm pretty sure I posted one a while back. Search Splice and captken and it should come right up.

I looking forward to fishing wahoo with cable. I've fished them in Cabo San Lucas, cable had to be used bite off suck, and I love their taste. So, I may be using a little heavier cable when rigging them. Some of my lures cost me too much to just risk it with mono. Thanks for the input. I'll be there soon; soon as I get a buyer for the house.
