It's exceptionally secure and shake-resistant in all materials and is perfectly symmetric. It's also remarkably easy to untie after heavy strain, even when wet.

PUT IN TITLE INFO and META TAGS!, think "b" and "q" with reference to the starting shapes of the ropes.

Although the Zeppelin Bend can join ropes of different sizes and materials, no bend works properly when joining ropes of vastly different diameters.  You'll often notice this when the bend doesn't draw up neatly.  In such cases, you should consider joining the ropes with a hitch like the
Sailor's Hitch, treating the larger rope as a passive object, or just use interlocking loops.
