    Anyone done some destructive testing on this "new" lonetracker loop? Curious on how much stronger, if at all, this eye is over a conventional eye. Also, this new eye uses more rope, is it really an advantage?

    Question:
    Can you use a plastic nylon wire tie to lock the bury?

    No, it's not. But then, synthetic cordage in every color under the sun isn't either.
