Replacing nuts with knots 3-Apr-2014 At 2:05:24 PM stuart h
Probably not a surprise that the strength of cord etc used in jammed knots has been looked at in Germany:

I have abseiled off jammed knots several times but have rarely used them as pro while leading. As you would expect, a lot fiddlier (sp?) than placing wires. Usually I have used variations of fishermens in cord and overhands in sling. As suggested above, I have found it good to tie smaller knots close in front of bigger knots to increase the jamming/wedging effect. To lead anything steep you will want plenty of various size knots tied in advance but I can't really picture a convenient way to organise a big rack. Have fun.
