something just does not add up right with this test setup cause history shows that 99% of rope breakage during pull test is around the first bend in the fig or almost in near the beginning of the knot and here yours broke off above the knot.

This does not make sense .

Nope... the rope broke in the knot at the ram end. Not above the knot. Not sure why you would say it broke off above the knot?


see this link

record shows it generally brakes off inside the knot or just slightly above the bend where rope comes in . looks like yours broke off 12" above the knot or may be you need to post a better photo of fig8 loop so we could see the breakage point.
