The repair I did, which was pointed out, depends on the monofiliment laced around the split for strength, not the epoxy added after lacing it up. Epoxy just cannot mend this area, as it is a type of plastic that practically nothing will stick to. The epoxy I added was just to keep the monofiliment in place and keep it from coming untied. Wire can be used instead of monofiliment, but is harder to get tight. Anything that can lace up the split and keep the ends together will affect the repair.
I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
