Hi Calain, If by weight you mean your own, then you should be fine. It is common to put knots in slings when trying to equalise anchors for example. Dangers arise when you fall onto a sling without any elasticity (a dynamic rope for example) in the system, but you should avoid that at all times, Knot or no. There have been some tests that suggest tying a knot in a sling can sometimes even increase its strength! Hope that helps, Dave

Hey Alistair, I generally use a 60cm sling (120cm diameter) and it works great for me. Hope that helps! Dave
