Members: Fig8 vs Fig9?

I have heard many justifications for the choice of a Figure-of-9 knot over the Figure-of-8 knot and they normally come down to:

  • “Easier to untie after heavy loading”;
  • “Stronger” (maintain more of the strength of the host rope);
  • “Just what I was trained or told to use”.
