DaHo Hollow Spectra Mono Threading Needles
The DaHo Hollow Spectra Threading Needles are hollow inside, except for the point, so monofilament or fluorocarbon line can be inserted into the needle. Then, the needle with the internal mono/fluoro line, is inserted, or threaded, into the hollow center section of the spectra braid. The needle, and attached mono/fluoro line, is typically inserted inside of the spectra from 3 to 5 feet to provide the best strength of the join. Because of the slick surface of the mono/fluoro line, the end point of the spectra must be finished to secure it to the mono/fluoro line. This finishing is usually done by gluing, serving, crimping, or some combination of these attachments, to the spectra line end. This ensures the join will not slip before the compression pressure occurs in the braid of the hollow spectra line to hold the joined lines together.
The new DaHo Threading Needles have been sized by their length so if a customer has more than one of them, they can stand them on their open end and find the one they want by its length, compared to all the other threading needles. Our smallest threading needle, the 10 to 20# size, has a length of 5.3". Each larger threading needle is .1" longer than the last, with our largest 400 to 500# size being 6.5" in length.
The primary size of the threading needle is the ID, or Internal Diameter, indicating the approximate size of the mono/fluoro line that it will fit inside. The threading needle size you need is determined by the size of the mono/fluoro line you are using. It is recommended that you select a needle that is at least .002" larger than your line for ease of use.
If your line is not on our charts, your line size can usually be found on the spool the line was purchased on, or by visiting the line manufacturer’s website. You will usually want to get a needle that will fit the line you are using, and provide and additional .002" of 'free' space to ease the insertion of your line.
If the mono/fluoro line is too large for the needle, you will have to cut it down, which is not much fun to do. The needles will hold smaller sizes of mono/fluoro line, up to a point, without issue. All are named for the typical size range of mono/fluoro that they will hold, but you really need to select your needles by the actual size of your mono/fluoro line, as the line size can vary a lot.
In Threading needles, we typically use thinner walled tubing to manufacture the needle. This is so the overall size of the needle will remain as small as possible, while offering the largest interior size to hold the monofilament or fluorocarbon line you are using. Thinner is definitely better in this case, and our needles are the thinnest available.
130 to 150# Mono Threading Needle - Model: N15053 Tube Length: 6.1", OD Size: 0.065"/1.65mm, ID Size: 0.053"/1.35mm Spectra Sizes: 200 and up

DaHo Loop Splicing Needles
DaHo Loop Splicing Needles are mainly used to insert one piece of spectra line inside another. They can also be useful in 'opening up' the inside of the hollow spectra line so larger tools can be more easily used. Instead of being hollow inside, the loop splicing needle has a wire loop attached to its trailing end.
The needle is inserted into the Spectra line being spliced, and the end of the other piece of spectra line is inserted into the needle’s wire loop. As the needle is inserted into the line being spliced, the other piece of line is pulled along with it. When done, the needle is brought out of the line being spliced, and the end of the line attached to the needle wire loop is tightened to complete one side of the splice, or the terminating loop, as the case may be.
Typically, thicker walled tubing is used for these needles, as the focus is not on the needle’s internal open size, but on strength, and the always important overall small size. The primary size of the needle is the OD, or Outside Diameter, and what sizes of spectra lines it would best be used with.
Small Loop Splicing Needle - Model: LS0355 OD Size: 0.0355"/0.90mm Braided Line Sizes: 60 to 130
Medium Loop Splicing Needle - Model: LS0420 OD Size: 0.0420"/0.110mm Braided Line Sizes: 80 to 200
DaHo Reverse Latch Spectra Splicing Needles
Our newest line of needle products are our DaHo Reverse Latch Splicing Needles. The design for these products came from Jerry Brown, a pioneer in the development of hollow spectra fishing lines. We appreciate his design as this product brings some unique features and ease of use characteristics that we try to provide in all our products.
Many of the loop creation and splicing techniques require that a line be released by the tool, while it is threaded up another line. Normal loop splicing needles will not work in these situations as they cannot release a line from the loop. In those types of operations, our DaHo Reverse Latch Splicing Needles allow the latch to open, releasing the held line, when needed. Also, since they are now attached to our standard 6" needles, so you can now make longer loops and splices without the limitations of the old latch needles. With our Reverse Latch needle, the latch is always the trailing end of the tool.
Small Reverse Latch Needle - Model: RL0355 OD Size: 0.0355"/.90mm Braided Line Sizes: 60 to 130
Medium Reverse Latch Needle - Model: RL0420 OD Size: 0.042"/1.06mm Braided Line Sizes: 80 to 100
