Knot Coating ?

Sean...thanks so much for your tip about moving the second Nail Knot back a bit.. it worked like a charm.... and passed the FRANK test....I put a screwdriver through the loop and pulled as hard as I could and the knots never budged !!!

For some reason I have an aversion to just the one nail knot even though your logic is that we attach butt sections with one nail knot all the time... I guess I just like that safety factor of the second nail knot... either way I have a much cleaner loop now thanks to you...

FINAL QUESTION... do you coat the nail knots and with what ? is UV Knot Sense good ? since I have some of that..

Again thank you for taking the time to help me..

frank
