My new favorite terminal knot

Recommended Posts

I love it. Especially for flouro. Much stronger than it looks, small and compact, fast and easy.

Cinching it properly can be tricky at first, but appears to be critical. Youll know you did it right when it cinches smoothly and the tag comes out perpendicular to the running line. I like it because there is very very little friction while cinching.

It is deceptively easy.  I know what you mean.

It seems to work best with heavier lines.  I tired it with some 10 lb. mono and it kept breaking off at the knot after a considerable amount of pressure.  I then tied the palomar with the line and it was much harder to break. 

15 lb. P-line CX Premium was unbreakable for me using this knot though.

What I have noticed is that hook eye diameter and line diameter need to be proportional. I bet if you tied that 10lb to a swivel, or dropshot hook instead of that big ole EWG, youll find that it retains it's strength.

Can you use it with braid? Cool little knot.

I havent tried it, but i dont think it will work with braid. It will probably slip.

Cool little knot and I'll probably use if for flies but I'll be stubborn and still take the few extra seconds to tie a proven knot to everything else that i know can withstand some abuse with little risk
