Hi McFly,

It sounds like you were using a flame. You need to use a flat soldering iron or a piece of metal you heat. Hold the mono against the hot metal and It will form an eye. Using a flame is too hard to control. Ten pound mono is too small. Blacken the melted eye after it cools and you have your eye.

Frank
