Terminating a rope while retaining full strength can be difficult. Generally, a bollard or high-strength tie off is used.
Testing was done to determine if less-common knots or a knot/prusik combination could retain enough rope strength to
be used as tensioning side terminations in highlines. Raw data and tabulated results are available below, with the paper coming soon.
