Hi All, I have two loops here, one is Lee's Super 8 Loop (Reversed version)
         The next one I don't know what to call it yet. Three rope diameter in the nipping loop, and so do
         second collar, another good thing is the second collar (round turn cross over point) is nipped
         by the main nipping loop.
         It is a compact knot. have one quick test I am safe to said it is jam resistant. and easy to untie.
         This is not a sloppy loop, deep in my heart I have to say this is the best out the for now. Of Couse I am not
         a rock climber, just left it to you guys. Thanks alanlee.

           Hi All, there are many more variations of this figure 8 loop, I like this simplest 8 loop

           Dec 24,2023 ;   Hi All , Just add another loop here, making it easy to compare these two loop.
                                   This new loop here, I don't know what to call it yet. It is a smooth, compact,
                                    simple, beautiful knot. Have a very nice collar near the standing part.
                                    It seemed like adding another tuck to the tail might make it great.
                                    Thanks.

i'm a fan of 'simpler',
but the super 8 is pretty
(also important ☺)

     Hi All,
            I have a few more loops here. First image A is better than B. second image C is better than
            D. have a few quick tests on A and C loops. I like both of them, they look very good to me.
            I hope one of these days I have the free time to finish testing all the loops that I have posted
            recently. Thanks alanlee.

   Hi All,
           I have two more loops here that I like. I guess I need some serious test on all of these knots.
           Will get it done one of these days. alanlee.

           Dec 10, 2023. Add another loop here that relates to the loop above,
                                making it easy to show their differences.

 Hi All, I have another loop here that I like very much.
          Well, again, it is a big project for me. I need to do a lot of quick test and get some rough idea
          how well all these knots perform first, and chose the best one, then I can do the proper test.
          I have so many knots here and get a little confusing here, will post more images for those who
          relate and also some look alike knots. 
          I have a huge project here. I am sure I have some great knots here. I just need time to finish
          this project.  alanlee.
