Topic - "Reversed" fig-8 knot strength?

999thAndy on 15 Jan 2014
An ordinary fig 8 knot has a breaking strength of ~80% of the rope strength.

Does anyone know what this would change to if instead of re-threading the fig 8 starting at the bottom (nearest to the climber) the fig 8 was re-threaded from the top (nearest the belayer)?

I've done a search but can't see any data/results.

Cheers

Andy
