The butterfly can easily be moved along the rope and you can make the loop bigger or smaller without untying the knot, a great feature for equalizing onto other parts of the anchor. Additionally, the knot can get pulled in three directions and not get distorted.

I trust that not too much strength is lost with this knot?

I simply don't know.

Thanks,

Gene, it's strong in all those directions, that's another beauty of it.
