1) Start with a pc. of mono or like mine fluorocarbon 30 # about 3/4 of an inch long
2) Center on pliers and Melt from the Top- Down
3) Rotate Pliers and do again
4) stand back and look at your work.
When you melt the eyes and you get the fluorocarbon back to the pliers a quick second burn causing just a momentary smoke will amber the eyes from clear.

I'd always heard about "burnt mono eyes" and wondered what that was about... how it was done.
Thank you much!

Ditto that, Madkasel!
Thanks for the step-by-step, Fry Flyer. I had NO idea! I'm going to save this tip, for sure.

He riseth up Early in the Morning And Disturbeth the whole Household.
Mighty Are His Preparations.
He goeth forth full of Hope, and when the Day is Far Spent He returneth,
Smelling of Strong Drink and the Truth is not in Him.
