Got some 8mm  cord today so I made a Giant monkey fist using a golf ball as the core. It's actually easier to make a monkey fist from thicker cord.
Getting bigger with tennis ball.

I completed my best monkey fist knot yesterday using quarter-inch poly-fill rope (the cheap crap with the blue paper core) with a sand filled tennis ball in the knot. It turned out to be a little over half a meter long. When testing it, I smashed it against a two liter bottle of water, unopened, and it compressed the bottle so quickly that the cap split in two.

Thanks for the awesome tutorial! :D
