Has anyone used the clark drip rings with 7/64 amsteel whoopies? Tying a knot in Amsteel or any cordage cuts its ultimate strength by a good bit. However the drip rings are a lot less abusive to the cord than tying a knot.

Has anyone had extensive experience using the clark rings as instructed by Clark except with whoopies instead of the stock ropes. My gut feeling is that they would be fine since there are no sharp edges on the rings and they actually have an increased radius at all the contact points.
