Topic - Tie-in-Knot Top Trumps

r0x0r.wolfo - on 24 Apr 2014
Criteria/Weighting:

Security - 25%
Ultimate Strength - 20%
Ring Loading - 15%
Ease of Tying - 15%
Ease of Untying - 10%
Ease of Identification - 10%

Ease of tying/Identification isn't a popularity contest, we're imagining a world where a Dopelter-Bulin is just as ubiquitous as the figure eight on a bight. Ultimate strength is the percentage strength of knotted vs unknotted rope rounded and divided by 10.

Standard Bowline:

Security - 5
Ultimate Strength - 7
Ring Loading - 2
Ease of Tying - 9
Ease of Untying - 9
Ease of Identification - 7

Total: 59/100

Figure Eight:

Security - 9
Ultimate Strength - 8
Ring loading - 5
Ease of Tying - 7
Ease of Untying - 6
Ease of identification - 9

Total: 71.5/100

Is this the civilized end to all future tie-in-knot rows?
