Soft Shackle Coated Knots

Recommended Posts

I'm seeing some of the rigging shops coat the diamond knot of their pre-made soft shackles. I've never had a knot slip so what's the purpose of this? Seems like overkill. Thoughts?

Never underestimate aesthetics when it comes to turning a dollar into two.

Curious also.

 

The ones I make generally squeeze the old coating in the knot to bind it all together. Although I've also never made them out of new line (they're consumables).
