Anyone tying the "Berkley Braid Knot"?  Thoughts?

Recommended Posts

Yup its a double clinch knot, but I will just stick with the palomar.

Wow, I'm surprised that no one has said anything about using a Palomar knot.  The Palomar is generally regarded as one of the strongest and easiest knots to tie, you guys should really give it a try.  

Here's a picture on how:

I did some striper/surf fishing this weekend (gorgeous in RI) and asked someone at the local salt water tackle shop what knot he used when you're using a double mono leader.  He said the Berkley one was THE BEST, so I thought I'd ask the experts.  

Has anyone tried the Palomar?  Anyone know any good knots for this application?

Umm, look at 3 of the previous responses. Palomar is the way to go. Period.

I actually use the berkley knot for braid applications. I find it very easy to tie and cinches down very easilly. With the palomor knot i find that some times the knot does not cinch down all the way and I have to retie.

Double Palomar, I'm I the only one how knows about this knot, it the same as the Palomar but instead of doing a half hitch, you'll do a hull hitch! Works BETTER, yes you heard me BETTER than the Palomar!

This must be you then..... ::)

Double Palomar Knot

PS- Did you mean "full" hitch???  Simply refusing to use that spell check again? :-/

You've tested this theory then?  Care to share your results showing increased break strength, shock strength, etc?

That's a double line clinch knot with extra wraps.

The clinch knot(single or double) is wrapped from the hook up the line, but the Berkly is wrapped the opposite way.

I've never used that knot and from the looks of it, I never will. I see some elements that may result in an imperfect knot (double line, two line loops and multiple twists pulled down to the hook eye).

I don't have any problem with the Palomar or Uni-knot.

You are correct. I didn't look close enough to the way the wraps were done.

This looks like an interesting knot.  I like the Palomar the best but it's a pain to tie on a buzzbait, crankbait, etc.  I've been planning to experiment with the uni knot and this looks like one I'll try as well.
