Inside the riser, where the soft link is joined with it's larks head, you wouldn't want the brake line snagging that knot as it pulls through when releasing the brake. A rapide link will not be affected.
Wrong answer.....wear on the soft link. he soft link tab is tacked down.
I get a few reserves a year that don't have the soft links tacked down... It's pretty rare to even see it on a main.
(yes, I tack them)
