    Default Knot Suggestion

    Hi there, can someone advice me a knot for a shared hole grommet. I was taught to use a 'Pro Knot' which i believe is very secure. Unfortunately i see this knot goes through large grommet holes. Any advice? i have seen kwun's video and i believe that knot size is same as pro knot

    Parnell knot, but I try to avoid tying off on a shared hole.

    I think Parnell and pro knot is the same. Here is a link to the image http://www.keohi.com/tennis/misc/images/34.gif

    Sorry, I thought the pro knot didn't have the second loop.

    Yeah that's how I understand it. Parnell knot goes round the anchor string twice, Wilson/pro knot just once.

    I think you are correct, sorry for the confusion. I just have been reading a misleading article. The know i use is Parnell knot: http://www.keohi.com/tennis/misc/images/34.gif

    I used Parnells until very recently, but I don't think it's up to the kind of tensions I'm using these days. After some fiddling, I developed a "double Parnell" that's similar to the Toshi, and I'm happy with it so far.

    Adding a half hitch on top of an existing knot doesn't reduce the tensions loss because it doesn't add any "sideways" bulk; it only makes the knot look as if it hasn't sunk into the grommet.

    Hi Mark, you mention double Parnell knot, do you take the string thought both loops or just through the first loop?

    ^Both - I end up with two loops and a tail, like the Toshi.

    The extra half hitch knot does help the whole knot stay out of the grommet. As for the tension loss, if you use a knot that reduces tension loss before your half hitch knot, then it isn't a problem.

    Not really.

    Do a Parnell, then do another over-under-through, ignoring the first over-under-through.

    The Toshi knot should to be use for starting or ending knot or both ?

    In his video (https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v...type=3&theater), after the two loops, he pass inside one or the two loops ? The second time, same question?

    Thanks for your help.
