Topic - Which knot for a stopper knot when abseiling / rapelling?

anon60521 - on 18 May 2014
I'd imagine there are a few different takes on this but just had a few questions.

I'm referring to the stopper knot on the ends of the rope to stop you abseiling off the ends if they don't reach the ground

1) What knot do you normally use as a stopper knot (figure of 8, triple fishermans/stopper)?

2) Do you tie the knot using both ropes ie instead of a stopper knot in both ends do you tie one big stopper knot so the ends are held together?

Any thoughts would be appreciated
