I love the mathematics involved in knots. I work at a fiber optic manufacturing plant and love to test breaking strength of knots on our tensile strength test bench. Do a search on Knots. You would not believe the crap you will find.... It is a science in itself...

Don,
Yes I can do this although most of that info is available. If you want me to pull a knot of a particular type let me know. Send me a sample if you like!

Mike, I use "Perfection Loop Knot" almost exclusively for my tippet connection. I am curious how strong this knot is.

I'm curious about the different knot strengths I see between the same knots in Fluoro or mono. Seems like certain knots should just not be used in fluoro or to join fluoro/mono. For instance, last w/e I put a 12 lb fluoro tippet on 20 lb mono with a surgeons, tightened the knot, then gave it a tug to check it and the mono broke easily in the knot. I suppose it could be the way I tightened the knot but I don't think so. Am I alone in this? Is there a source of info relating to this?

When you tie the fluoro to the mono, use a five turns surgeons like Kenney Abrames recommends. Five turns won't slip.

Loop to loop connections? Haven't had problems with there either, just easier to tie on a new piece of tippet sometimes. What's a standard loop knot?

I'm sorry for the confusion. I mean just a standard loop to loop connection. This way you eliminate the possible problems encountered when joining two different types and size materials together via a direct knot such as a surgeons. Flouro is hard and brittle. I imagine it could cut through mono if the knot is not cinched exactly right. Mono compresses and is much softer. Some brands are softer then others.
Also with a loop to loop you don't loose length on the transitional piece.....
