That sounds tempting, each to their own of course but i have heard that triple fishermans must be used for this type of cord since as it is quite slippery...

I've always only used double fishermans, on hexes etc. Lack of data was irritating me, so I found some:

Triple fisherman's do gain some strength on Blue Water Spectra (for example); but it adds only about an extra 3kn, vs around 15kn for a Double Fishermans.... I really can't see a problem with that, esp for hexes and big bros! Maybe if you are tying an anchor cord, or sling.

BTW: I found something else that was a concern... that my hexes, which I love! and are slung with Kevlar, which I assumed was bombproof... has a problem with internal abrasion inside the sheath, and can fail without warning. Great!
