Hi All,
         Last time I tie the Butterfly loop on a vertical line, this time I use the similar method and tie it on a horizonal line, it work out
         quite well too. Andy, I have to thanks you, if I didn't see your video, I may not have these two videos.

I've posted the results of my break testing of the ABK in the "practical knots" section of the forum.

My conclusion is that the strength of the ABK is symmetrical, there is not a weaker and stronger side of the knot, as proposed by Xarax.

I've attached the pdf to this post as well.  I have a larger file (400kb), containing pictures, which I can provide to anyone interested.  Or I'll post it on the forum if anyone has a suggestion of how to do it (the max attachment size is 100kb)

An interesting point that knots in smaller line may be more efficient than in larger line.

I may be able to break test some larger diameter line in the future.  If I manage to, I'll post the results.
