Default Splice Monel Wire into Spectra

A few years ago I saw a Monel Top Shot that was spliced onto spectra similar to a monofilament top shot. I can't remember where I saw it, but I remember thinking it was a great idea. Does anyone know where to buy one or the process to splice it yourself?

It would be a great way to do a quick rig change for wahoo.

I have also done it myself. its just like splicing mono. I just go farther into the double walled spectra.

That was what I was looking for, thank you.

Very easy as the wire acts like a needle. Be very careful to grind / sand the end of the wire to a rounded point - eliminating any sharp edges or it will cut right through your hollow core. I use .04 monel with 200# hc spectra.
