PROKNOT summarizes essential outdoor knots on six plastic cards that weigh less than an ounce for the set. --Backpacker Magazine, September, 2000
Waterproof and durable. --Outside Magazine, June 1999
From the Publisher
Even if you already have a good knot book, the PROKNOT cards make a great field reference that is waterproof and nearly indestrucable! These cards are used for training by the US Departmant of Defense, Municipal Fire Departments, Boy Scout Troops, and Search and Rescue groups. Even arborist companies (for their tree climbers) use them! Being able to take these little cards out into the elements to refer to them when you need to know that knot is a real benefit.

The knots included are:
-Bowling On a Bight.
So, that's twenty knots. For each, there's a brief description of what the knot is used for and about two illustrations. The illustrations are nicely done; they're detailed enough to see what the knot is, with small arrows shown to help you visualize what's going on. When two different pieces of rope are being used (like the Sheet Bend, etc.) there are two different colors of rope shown, so everything is clear.
For the five dollar price, these are good cards. A learning tool for some and boredom busters for others, these fulfill their intended purpose. Toss a set in your backpack to get some practice or use your "down time" more easily.
The text and illustrations are easy to see. The instructions are easy to understand.
I would have rated 5 star but I have one totally nit picky issue. The "pages" need to be trimmed down to fit into a standard size tin.
That said, after trimming it down none of the text or illustrations had to be cut off.
