I have had great success with the FG knot over the last 6 months, and this newer knot has come across my radar. Has anyone ever heard of the SC knot, if so, do you tie it, and what has been your experience?

Never heard of it.  If the SC knot has a reference to South Carolina then you can bet Duct Tape is involved.

Just watched a video on the knot! Looks easier than the FG which I have been struggling with. Gonna have to give it a try!

Never heard of it. I'll find a video online and check it out. Thanks Lou.

It does look easier to tie than FG. I personally have not tried it yet, I was mainly curious if anyone ties it. I'm comfortable tying the FG now, it took me a little bit, but after tons of practice, I finally got it. The sweet spot for me is 24 tight twists and 4 half hitches to cinch it down. You master that, and that knot will not fail you.

Never heard of it. It looks pretty easy to tie after watching the videos. It also looks pretty strong as well. I like the Crazy Alberto knot. Like the FG, it's super small and very strong.
