Re: What knot is the Strongest?
What exactly is being asked here? For a knot to fail... it either opens and no longer is knot... or the rope parts. and that would be a rope strength factor not the knot.
Knots under lots of strain can get very hard to undo. That's no good. So the name of the game is a knot which is secure... doesn't slip or undo... and doesn't tighten so much that it's difficult to undo.
Sailor, rephrase the question please.
pay attention... someone's life depends on it
