    I'm such a knot nerd, but haven't seen this thread yet! Tagging for future reference.

    OP: You mentioned a "Figure 8 on a Bight" being difficult to untie after use. That is indeed the case, which is why I prefer a "Figure 9 on a Bight." I think you'll find that knot just as useful and much easier to untie at the end of the day.

    Here's an attempt at explaining how it's tied:

    Start off like you would with a Figure 8, but rather than bringing the working in down through the bight to finish it off, wrap the working in around another half turn, then up through the bight.
