Topic - rethreaded bowline

JD84 - on 13 Jul 2012
I've been using this knot for a while now for indoor climbing as I tend to do quite a few practice falls, and it unties easily and is supposed to be far less likely to work loose than any other bowline. However, it worries me a bit when I look down and the knot has lost it's original shape (after quite a few falls)... can't really describe what it looks like but just a bit deformed. Other knots I've used (double bowline and figure 8) haven't done this as much. So what's that all about? Probably nothing to worry about but... It does worry me a bit! Has anyone else had this happen?

Mine looks just like this when tied
