Perfection loop.
« on: July 14, 2020, 04:31:56 PM »
I noticed the IGKT chart versatackle is tied with perfection loops. Why would the author choose to use it--over other loops--in that application?   Wouldn't using it as a tool for leverage increase the likelihood of jamming--which I understand to be the primary complaint about it?

Good day Mainebingo and welcome.

Could be a variety of reasons. Perhaps the desire for permanent eye loops, just happens to like them, wanted to showcase them in that picture or didn't think of using another at the time.

Yes, they would most likely be a chore to untie after a significant load.

Me personally, I probably would choose another eye loop with one I like better.

A matter of personal preference and aesthetics. That is certainly part of the draw to learning knots for me.
Thank you for the welcome and reply.

In materials I work , for stable fixed eye utility function; would use Bowline type
>> specifically Double Bowline w/Yosemite tie off (DBY).
.
So, always stuck in mind that Budworth showed jig w/Perfections as fixed eye utility in at least one book
>>So this might be directly from himself or influence
>>other manuals show trim sleek w/scissors, not as likely done in this usage
>>so in closer confines of drawn tight
i  don't sit still long enough to fish, so when played w/Perfection Knot
>>so would always make it slipped; BUT leaves  even 'wider' thru this tackle draw.
