    This has got to be THE BEST site I have ever seen when it comes to rope and knots! Keep up the good work guys!

    What you have done here is amazing.

    Thank you for this fantastic series - I found it just the other day when checking on some fishing knots. The presentations are perfectly easy to follow and I can do so at my own pace and check everything. This is a wonderful example of a clear and well presented site. You are to be congratulated. :-)

    I am SO impressed by the iPad app for $5. Since I take my iPad sailing and fishing with me, using Navionics and GPS to navigate, your knot tutorials are always handy and clear to understand. Thanks a million!

    Thanks for this great service. I have used it every day for the last 2 weeks to learn most of the knots you have on your site. I've referred several friends and brothers to your site. Your animations are the easiest method I've used to learn knots. I'd love to see more additions. Please keep it up!!!

    Just found this page and love it!! The animations are amazing and the reason for this e-mail. I am a Fire Service Instructor and teach ropes and knots.

    Wow. This is the best site that I have come across in a long time. The graphics and the accompanying written descriptions are great. I will be sending all of my rope rescue students to this site and will include a referrence to it in my rescue manual.

    I just wanted to say that this is by far the best website for demonstrating how to tie knots I've ever seen. The animated shots of different stages during the tying process are nothing short of a stroke of genius. Not to mention the fact that the photos are very clear well done.

    Great website, great work. The world needs more teaching aids like this.
