    Your web site on ropes is the best that I have seen.

    I bought Animated Knots about 2 weeks ago; I just love it. I am an industrial Electrician w/30 years experience. I was looking for a web harness, and I found your Hasty Harness; sometimes you just do not have enough harnesses on the job site. Your Hasty Harness is very comfortable. I also like your splicing section: eye splice, back splice, and short splice; most books do not cover these very well or at all; electricians use splices when pulling wire in conduits, most knots will not fit down the conduit when pulling wire w/ the rope. Thanks for a great product,

    Top site! The best on the 'interweb' as we call it here. I think special emphasis should be made to the 'rolling hitch'. This is THE knot.

    Fantastic site. We have links to your site through ours and if possible would like one back. I hope to hear from you soon as I would like you do do a few knots which are very popular in England for carp fishing.

    Your site is a godsend. As a basic firefighting instructor here in Westchester County (NY), I know one of the most difficult parts of the course for new recruits is knot tying. We're starting a new class in April - we fully intend to turn people on to your site. Will keep you informed as to our progress - thanks again.

    Absolutely Mucking Afazing! I lead Cub Scouts for 10 years, I do wish we had this site then. And your Stereo site, I thought I'd died and gone to Heaven. Now my hubby sees what I see when I stare at our bathroom tiles - 4 different layers - thank you. It was brilliant. Damn good work.

    Just a quick note to say that I loved your site so much, I didn't think twice to buy the app for Android. Perfect thing for us Sea Cadet instructors! Thank you! :)

    Thanks for making such a great site on knots. The information and illustrations are outstanding, just what I needed!

    This website is awesome! My Dad has been trying to teach me knots for years without success, but I was able to pick up a few basic knots from your site within days. Great job-very helpful!!!
