Default Braid breaking strength

I'll post this here after cluttering up General discussion with knots.

Anyone of you tried this home brew test to see when your braid will fail? It'll give you an idea of how much pressure it takes to pop braid. And it may surprise you.

Get a length of braid and tie these knots, but do 3 twists, on each end.

Put a loop on something sturdy, bumper hitch, fence post etc. Then something in the other loop to pull on.

Slowly pull then try the snap pull.

Post what you think. I've tried it with a cheap fish scale and the needle moves too fast when it reaches breaking point.

And if you try this with mono, wear a glove, stings when it pops.
I can explain it to you but I canít understand it for you.
