bow line 2-Dec-2006 At 12:21:21 AM PreferKnitting
Hi B.Pro

What made you decide that the bowline was a better option?

As for field testing, I can only think that that will produce more heresay because it's based on general observations but no finite results. If you choice to make a statement like

>a rethreaded bowline would at a guess be twice the strength
>value given in these tests

then it would more than likely only be resolved in labs. But hey, labs- smabs. Go climb outside and witness the reall deal you would say right? What could an upstart like me, who's retired with nothing to do so decides to pick up a hobby know about climbing and knots. You're probably thinking these hippies that are growing old with too much income! Why don't I just go buy a harley or something?

Yes, you sound experienced and what you have expereinced and witnessed is invaluable I'm sure. (I hope to climb my first grade 10 climb before I die!) An open mind is always beneficial because the environment around you changes and the sport, equipment and knowledge that you knew changes as well.

>cant teach an old dog new tricks?

Not sure if youre talking about yourself or me. But if it's me, becareful, I have sharp teeth from all the years of gnawing at bones!
