Palomar knot is the best around. I have never had a problem with a knot breaking or slipping. It's easy too.

I've always used the improved clinch knot and have NEVER had a problem.

Try this unscientific experiment.  Find a couple of old identical hooks.  Tie onto one with a Palomar knot and the other with another knot you might be considering.  Put them in your workbench vise and apply tension to the line until it breaks.  I think you'll have your answer.

I think palomar will win this as far as good all around fishing knot...  Try what Zone_V recommended too. You can test all your knots this way...

I thought I was the only one in the world who uses this knot

This year I may try to use the polamar just to see how easy it is to tie

I believe most pros use the palomar knot.  But no matter which knot you use, always moisten all the  line that  will be involved in the knot.

Palomar works the best with any type of line just have to wet it real good with Florocarbon.

I agree with the Palomar knot. Although I do use a improved clinch knot on spinner baits and buzzbaits. At times I feel they run truer.

If you practice your palomar, you can tie it in under 30 seconds. Does not sound like much but during a tournament, it could be the difference between second and first.

I like the Uni-Knot but I go through the eye twice before I start wrapping. Very strong knot for mono or splicing lines together such as mono to mono or mono to braid. Do Not Use this knot on braid alone it will slip. Use only Palomar for braided lines. ;D

Easy, fast tying, and strong. The palomar and inproved clinch are great.

When fishing salt water, the chinch knot is great.  When fishing fresh water, nothing beats the Palamor Knot.  All my bass pro buddies swear by it so I use it all the time.  Of course, it can be a challenge to use the Palamor Knot on large crankbaits or topwaters, but I do it the majority of the time.  Have someone show you how to tie the Palamor Knot as it can be confusing if you try to follow the pictures.  :)

I use the improved clinch knot just because it was the first one I was taught and the one I have always used.

The only time I ever had a problem with a knot was a long time ago when I had no idea about fishing or knots. I hooked a big pike and the pike just ripped the line. That taught me a lesson about knots.

The [glb]Improved clinch knot [/glb]has never broke or slipped on me...  It's very reliable, but there are better knots,  there is the triline knot which I like, but its to much hastle for something that works just a little better.  By the time you do your little [glb][glow=red,2,300]"fancy"[/glb][/glow] knot.  The [glb]Lunker Bass [/glb]sw just swam away...

I've got the trilene knot down pretty good so it doesn't any time at all.  The palomer knot takes me forever for some reason.  If I'm not too worried about strength I use the improved clinch knot to save a little time but in tournaments or whenever theres a chance for a big one I use the trilene.  I go witht he Rapala knot when using cranks that tie directly onto the body.
