Break Testing Knots - Zeppelin & Figure 8 & Alpine Butterfly & Reever & Bowline & Double Fisherman


We broke 6 knots end to end and in a bend (a loop). 40 samples total. Let us know on our discord page for our new series of How Knot to Tie Ropes on format and the testing you want to see. https://discord.com/invite/Ja2gYHhxYE


We tested a 7mm Edelweiss rope (http://www.edelweiss-ropes.com/en/cor...) with a 9.8kn MBS. We are not sure why Edelrid's 7mm rope is 14kn (https://www.edelrid.de/en/sports/acce... Do you know?


Carl Mitchell prepared all the samples and shipped them to us. Thank you! And thank you Bobby for breaking these!

Breaking Gear Fear

Edutainment has been a great way to help people understand their gear, and know the true limitations of it.  Watching HOW gear fails is more important than the force itself, as almost all gear is super good enough.  It's more important to share information on how to stay safe than it is to have a paywall.  We hope our stoke is contagious.
