Palomar Knot for braid?

Recommended Posts

i finally got some braid for the first time, green powerpro, 30 lb, for my shimano sedona 4000. i have never used braid before, so i went out last night to try it out. i was using a hula popper and nailed a nice 3 lb lmb. i didnt know any braid knots, so i used the Palomar, tied exactly like the pics you find on google, and it held fine. i didnt see where it slipped or anything, so i was wondering, is this a good knot to use for all my fishing? its fast and simple, and seems to have held ok.

There is a thread currently running regarding "knots for braid".

The Palomar Knot is a favorite.

I have used Power Pro for 3 years, on 8 Abu Garcia reels for bass and 6 catfish  reels.  I use the uni for all knots, never had a knot failure.  Prior to my using braid, I always used a Palomar knot.

The palomar works great for just about anything except Flouro.

I use the Palomar knot for braid. I have tried the double loop throught the hookeye, but usually just do it once. Have never had a problem.
