Does that have little taper wedges hammered into a collet or is it weld blobs on the end of the cable keeping it too fat to pull back through?

So far... I really like having the grab hook on the end of the cable so I think the ferrule doesn't work. First I worked out a flemish loop with the cable braided back into the line but the sliders get stuck on the thicker part of the line. So now I've redone the loop and did as Ed_ K suggested, that is dipping in flux and wrapping with solder and heating it in. That looks good and now I'm going to clamp it so the sliders have something to snug up agains without getting stuck on the loop. I'll try to post some pix.- next post.

should I cut the cable off shorter? I thought I would use two clamps.

There is just no arguing over such a nice cable end!

Best way to do it right there! Knots are a temporary fix and donít work well at all. Iíve reused my ferrule end for years to so itís not a one time deal.

David,   with the type hook you are using, the farmers rolled eye with a couple of cable clamps is just fine.

I use this same thing. 1/2 inch to 5/8 (pink - colour coded for size) Ferrell and wedge. Costs about $30 Canadian. Reusable. I use combo electric take and zip ties to temp hold it until it tightens up on a hard pull. Then trim it down with a cut off  disc. Not as quick as a knot but does a nicer job. Takes about 20 minutes if all goes well.
