Welcome back , outsiders in this video .
I'm gonna show you three different methods to tie the bowl and nut , including this ultra fast method .
So stick around .
The Bolan knot is a loop knot .
It's very easy to tie .
It's very versatile and it's very strong when it's under load .
It's one of the fundamental knots of the boy scouts and the FAA even recommends using a Bolin to tie down small aircraft .
The Bolin knot has been around for thousands of years .
Archaeologists have found evidence of a Bolin being used in the ship's rigging of ancient pharaohs .
But the first mention of the bowling is in John Smith's 16 27 work called the C grammar where he actually called it a bowling knot boling .
So that's where we get the , the term bowling , not bow line or bow line .
It's a bowling .
The bowling knot is extremely strong and reliable when under load .
And that's one of the pros and cons of the bowling knot is when it's not under load .
It has a tendency to be very easy to untie the tag end will , can work its way out and untie .
So it's both a pro and a con you can put a ton of load on the loop and still be able to untie it .
But there are some circumstances where it could come untied if it's not under load .
There's a few methods to prevent the bowling from coming undone , either putting a stop or knot or backing up your knot .
I'm not going to get into it in this video .
I'll do a advanced bowling video where I show how to back this up .
When you tie this knot , it reduces your rope strength by about a third .
So your , your rope strength will only be about 66% of what it's rated for .
So let's get into tying a couple bowling .
If you're new to not tying , you may not be familiar with the different terms associated with the rope .
I'll go over those very quickly .
The shorter end is called the running end or working end .
And the longer end of the rope is called the standing end or standing part .
I'm going to introduce the overhand loop .
It becomes handy when tying the bowl in as well as other knots .
To create the overhand loop , you take your running end and you loop it over the top of your standing part .
The loop should be pointing up as you can see the loop is over the top of the standing part .
I suggest practicing the loop several times .
It will become second nature and come in handy when tying other knots .
The first method to tie the Bolin is the most traditional method .
And the method most people use to learn to tie the Bolin start by taking the running end and you loop it over the top of your standing part to create a P .
Then think of your running end as a rabbit , the rabbit comes out of the hole around the tree and back down the hole , then you're going to pinch the running ends together , grab your standing end and pull it tight .
So let's do that one more time .
Take their running end and loop it over the top of the standing part to form A P .
Then we take our running end .
A rabbit , he comes out of the hole around the tree back down the hole .
Then we're gonna pinch both the ends of our running end , grab our standing part and pull both of them tight to create our Bolin one way to speed up the process of tying .
The traditional method is to use that overhand loop .
If you notice that overhand loop was that P , if you take the running end , loop it over the standing part , it creates that P .
Now , I'm going to take that rabbit come out of the hole around the tree back down the hole , pinch and pull it tight to form the Bolin .
The next method to tie the bow in is just a variation on the traditional method .
Speeding up the formation of that initial loop .
The way I tie , this is I pinch the running end between my index and middle fingers and then I rotate my hand all the way around .
Notice the running end is pointing down the standing part and then I flip my hand and push the running end through the rabbit is already out of the hole .
I just need to go around the tree back down the hole , pinch the running end and pull the standing part to finish off that bowling .
Let's do that method again .
You can see we're just basically combining the step of creating the loop and bringing the rabbit out of the hole .
Speeding up the tying of the Bolin take the running end between our two fingers , rotate our hand around , flip and push that end through .
If we do it right , our rabbit is out of the hole .
We are just going to come around that tree and back down the hall pinch and pull it tight .
This method is good to practice because it is fundamentally the same method used to tie a one handed bowling .
I will show it one more time a little bit quicker .
We have our bowling .
The final method to tie the bowling is my favorite and one of the quickest ways to tie that bowling .
Here's where the overhand loop comes into play .
We're going to create that overhand loop .
Here's our p that we saw before and our overhand loop is facing upwards .
Now , we're gonna take that loop and place it on top of the standing part and pull a little bit of the standing part out .
Then we're gonna come through the top of that loop and we're going to pinch the running end .
Like before , we're gonna pull our standing part and pull our bow in tight .
It is a very quick method to tie a bowling .
Let's see that one more time .
We have our rope , take the running end , the short end .
We are going to create that overhand loop and then we are going to place that overhand loop on top of the standing part and pull it out .
This is actually the first steps in making a Marlin spike catch , then we're gonna take the running end and pull it through the top of the loop .
We're gonna pinch and then pull the standing part .
So if you use this method to tie the bow in and you screw up a little bit , don't worry , you create your overhand loop and pull it through and get to this point and you don't know if you should go this way or through this way .
It's ok .
If you mess up and come through the other way , pinch it and pull it through .
It'll create a left handed bowling or a cowboy bowling .
It's really the same nod .
Just has the tag end on the outside and it's debatable , which is actually the stronger knot , the cowboy bowling will be fine for most applications .
Don't worry too much if you tie it backwards .
So I hope you like the three different methods of tying a bowling knot in future videos .
I'm going to go over some of the more advanced ways to tie a bowling knot , including how to put a stopper knot or backing up your bowling , different methods to tie it around objects and also how to tie it around yourself in a rescue scenario and bonus how to tie it with one hand .
