 Spectra Lashing - SparTalk
The lashing might be strongest of all, even with the same total rope mass, as it could have no significant splice distortion, given that a splice would only be at one end, and the multiple turns would share the load.
As for the effects of knots on strength, the turns and friction mean that you can have very, very little load on the bitter end, so you can pretty much secure it as you see fit.
Since lashing is tightly bound and from the friction of the pins, the theoretical 1% stretch would only occur over the lashing length.
