One of the criticisms of the cordalette is after you've tied the master knot, you have potentially poor equalization if you deviate from your set direction of pull. Ideal breaking strength is tested by winding each end around very large diameter drums. However, many critical factors cannot be controlled, including: The classic pre-equalized anchor Fig.

The picture shows all the knots as a reference. Welcome to Fishing Knots Selection These animated knots are primarily used for fishing, but some are useful in other applications.
Considerable attention and effort have been made to ensure that these descriptions are accurate.
This requires two tie-ins to my anchor. Other Benefits of the Quad The Quad anchor has two independent masterpoints. Distributive Distributive anchors theoretically distribute the overall load evenly to all anchor points within the system, reducing the likelihood of a single point failure, and can accommodate multiple directions of pull at the masterpoint.

The self-adjusting nature of the masterpoint allows a wide range of motion which can compensate for directional changes. On a sport climb, I'm usually pretty sure the two redundant bolts are plenty strong enough to hold my static weight. The testing proved the Quad Pocket masterpoint to be a stronger arrangement than the Equalette masterpoint data not in table.
