They're commonly made with a steel ball inside and used as a very effective weapon. That's why they're illegal in some areas. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 17:16, 27 August 2016 (UTC)
Every boatswain I've ever met says that a monkey's fist should never be tied with a weight inside since a thrown lead weight can be very dangerous. Also, anyone who has ever tied one would know that it would be very difficult to include anything on the inside, it is pretty crowded in there. 18.104.22.168 (talk) 21:38, 11 February 2011 (UTC)
- Monkey fists are commonly made with objects inside as a core. One application is main parachute deployment handles in skydiving. The monkey fist is constructed of paracord on a wood, plastic or foam core. Titaniumlegs (talk) 20:32, 11 July 2016 (UTC)
Rewrite this sentance
I can't even follow this sentance. Please rewrite it so that it actually makes sense and isn't a run-on. "A monkey's fist can be used on two ends of a tow lines of one side a fish net which is then thrown from one trawler to another, allowing the net to be cast and set between two boats so the trawl can be used between the two, in pair trawling where the tow or catch is negotiated between both parties." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 20:19, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
