    Wasn't there a thread about that a few years back?

    I posted this on treebuzz back in 2009 but it was just pictures, not a video. The reception was lukewarm at best.

    On a side note, between myself, the tree service where i used to work, and the Englishman who showed us this knot, we have over 30 years of combined experience using this as our primary rigging knot instead of the running bow. It's a beauty.

    Do you use this knot on heavier pieces as well?

    Played with this knot this morning on a little pin oak removal.
    I didn't trust it with the stuff over the house but I'm sure I would of been fine!(all in my head)
    How much breaking strength does it take form the line?thoughts??
    Thanks treemuggs

    Out of curiosity Muggs, you mention some situations where you would still use a running bowline?

    It sure is an interesting knot. Break testing it against a bowline would be cool, I bet it cinches down quite a bit if you really force it. It's neat, when you pull it down to the last bight you basically have a bowline with an non-captured loop.

    Cheers
