In case you're thinking of using hollow core and splicing and haven't yet, and just for comparison I took some yellow and also some white 80# JB Hollow that I tested to 105 lbs. (didn't break and I stopped). Then tied some knots and splices shown in the photo. From top to bottom: 7-turn Surgeon's: 72 lbs. break Uni to Uni: 72 lbs. break Line to Line splice: 105 lbs. End Loop splice: 105 lbs.
