Can I Use A Palomar Knot With Yo-Zuri Hybrid?

Recommended Posts

Finally picked some Yo Zuri hybrid up, and I can't wait to see how it peforms. I know with regular fluoro, the palomar isn't recommended. But since this is a co polymer line, would it be ok to use it??

Yes, the Palomar Knot is fine, but any other knot that you like will work, too.

Yo-Zuri Hybrid does not require a special knot.

Good to know, since I'm horrible at tying any other knot. Thanks RW.

You can, but I personally only use that knot for braid. I use the clinch knot for nylon lines, to me it holds better.

So when you say it holds better do you mean it doesn't break off as often or that it slips when using nylon based lines?

 

I personally think the palomar is a pain to tie in anything but braid so i usually use an improved clinch on anythign that isn't braid.

holds better, won't come apart/slip/break.

Yes. It works just fine when properly tied.

I use a clinch know with hybrid bc its just easier to tie, I'm sure the palomar would be fine though. As for the palomar not being good with FC, I've never had any problems breaking off with it.  What other knot is everyone using for FC?

What is the name of the knot, it's just like the improved clinch knot except you go through the eye of the hook twice and when u come back u slide throught both loops. I think I have heard it. Called the Trilene knot, and the braid knot. I use that knot for floro and braid. It, has not let me down yet.. Except for the once or twice that I was tying it too fast and messed up.

I have tried Snelling a straight hook for flipping, but it is not an easy knot for me to learn. Its a pain so If I'm flipping with braid ill use the knot I described above . Anybody else here snell their hooks?

Here is my suggestion for learning to tie new knots:

 

Get a medium/small diameter cotton rope.

Pratice tying your knot to the handlebar of

a lawn mower or something that allows you

to stand up and see all around the knot. This

will burn the structure into your mind and the

knot will "make sense".

For the most part, that's true for any knot. I use the Palomar for single hooks,

but it's too cumbersome for larger lures with multiple treble hooks. For the bigger

lures I like the Pitzen.

p.s. Play with the new knot I invented and tell me what you think:  http://www.bassresource.com/bass-fishing-forums/topic/110842-new-knot-the-big-o/

Rather than comparing one knot to another, I think it's best for an angler to grow accustomed to tying his/her favorite knot and , most importantly, learning how to recognize when it's not tied properly. Even the most minor issues with a knot will reduce it's strength in a hurry.

 

That said, I prefer to use the Improved Clinch with all lines except for braid, when I instead opt for the Double Palomar.  I've been using the Improved Clinch for as long as I can remember, I can tie it with my eyes closed, and I almost never break my line unexpectedly.

I love the trilene knot, too. It's worked great for all types of line.

What ever knot you decide to use make sure you moisten it before tightening!

x3 tried it and it rocks. Easier to tie and it has not failed yet. I used to use the palomar and I spent too much time tying it so was happy to learn the San Diego Jam
