Dang check out this knot. Needs a special tool but I've watched the tests for consistant 100% strength capacity. Just a bit stronger then the fg. Still not a knot I'd tie otw but I love setting up my topshot at home.

Thatís a good one, and one that I like to use. It takes some practice and a bit of time to learn, as well as a bobbin tool, but Iíve never had one fail as of yet.

I was just looking at some split ring pliers and stumbled across this company Toit. They "Invented" a knot in 2020 that looks interesting, but more importantly they have run some tests on common knots that my fellow knot nerds should get a kick out of. Line to line and terminal knots, but still missing my favorite FG knot!

Not sure if they are continuing their tests but it's some pretty good stuff, still looking for an overall table of results but the videos are fun.
