First, I made a line set and wanted to be consistent when I pre-stretched the lines. So... I went out and got a 50lb fish scale at Walmart for $5.00. This thing worked great to see what kind of load I was putting on each line. I would highly recommend this.
Here is a picture:
Second, to manage knots on line sets I was thinking of using shrink tube to cover up the knots and prevent snags.... I know if anyone tries this they will need to be extremely careful when shrinking the tubing so they don't compromise their line with the heat. Also, if you need to adjust your lines the tubing will come off easy.

Interesting. I have had my pig-tails snag now and again on my B-series handles - this may be the start of an idea to fix that problem too. Unless anybody else has an idea on how to stop them snagging?
I could of course just move my hands aparts and not flap my pig-tails around so much ....

Knowledge: The small part of ignorance that we arrange and classify.
