- Jun 3, 2014I have used heat shrink tubing instead of a fid. leave about an inch of the tubing off the end of the line to act as a fid. Cut it off when you're done. Have left the heat shrink on to ease length adjustment on whoopie slings that are lightly loaded.Heavily loaded splices fail at a too-abrupt taper, so don't leave heat shrink on a critical splice.
