Hi again,

that my line has no loop at the end, which I presume is the industry
standard way of selling the stuff.
Anyone got a good internet link that can teach me how to tie a loop
into a line?

Thx,

Alex.

Or just go to the kitesurf group files area and find Chris's stuff.

Either the Figure 8 knot or the Overhand can make a strong loop. The
Bowline works but will weaken the line more than the other two.

Scroll down a bit for an overhand with a lark's head. A figure-eight
is the strongest knot (doesn't weaken the line as much as other
knots). Haven't made a diagram for that yet.
