I lost Max's picture from my hard drive, so I can't post it. Basically you run the spectra through the braided material, then make the loop in the braid in the usual way(including the GSP). Apply a drop of superglue (Max specified a loctite brand) to the section of braid and GSP below the loop. I close the free braid end around the GSP with tying thread, cut any free ends and coat with aquaseal. You now have GSP running into a braided loop, coaxially. The braid protects the GSP from itself and anything it might be attached to, like fly line.
