Kippin's Four, Updated | Feb 2014

"Too hard to anneal?" - such was the provocative title of Robin Hall's email of February 2014. His goal was a modernisation of Kippin's classic Spliced Royal, replacing London No.3 with Triton Delight; but his suspicion was that falseness of Triton with Bristol and Superlative would make this task impossible. It turns out the falseness within a course is indeed problematic - for instance, consecutive plain leads of Bristol and Triton are false - but outside of the course there is less difficulty, and the task proved amenable for the stochastic tunneller.

Use of Kippin's bob calling was briefly considered, but we soon moved on to other callings which generated little-bell courses. In the end, Robin preferred the 2-part 3-spliced arrangements, and called the one based on the Alan Reading bob-calling.
