Knotting slings is fine. People get worried about this because they start looking shit up on the internet from people who do strength testing etc and post “interesting results.” The amount of Mountain Instructors and Guides (working professionals) who knot slings on a daily basis is huge! One statement that really annoys me throughout the whole knotting slings debate is when people say “but under dynamic loading you can exert x on a sling…” – if you are causing a sling to be dynamically loaded in an anchor, then you seriously don’t have a clue what you are doing!
