In 2015, RopeLab conducted some tests on Sterling rope’s 5.9mm PowerCord. I was interested in its use in anchoring and guying systems and wanted to see how it performed when knotted. The tests results are published in the report, Members: PowerCord.
These tests focused on 3 different configurations:
- 3-strand: Figure8 – 3 strands – Complete round turn & 2 half hitch tie-off.
- 2-strand: Figure8 – 2 strands – Complete round turn & 2 half hitch tie-off.
- 1-strand: Figure8 – Figure8.
