What Knot Do You Use For Tying On A Flouro Leader?

Recommended Posts

I've been using a uni knot to tie the two together but the other night, they kept snapping. I've been tying that knot all summer and it wasn't holding for some reason. I was doing it outside, at night, and the weather had dropped down to the 50s, could that have done anything?

Albright knot

Do a search on this topic. There are hundreds of threads asking the same ???

As far as the temperature drop. Shouldn't have any effect. Are you using a different brand or spool of line than you had used all summer?

What amazed me about this knot when I first started using it is that I couldn't hear it going through the guides on the cast. That means no friction and longer casts.

I prefer the Alberto knot using 5 wraps up and 5 wraps down when joining fluoro to braid. When I used a double Uni knot I found that if I didn't severely tighten the knots until AFTER I had slid them together less line breakage would occur.

Ridiculously simple to tie.

Double Uni too hard for an old man like me.

Alberto here as well. I used to use the Albright and sometimes still tie it without thinking, both always worked equally well for me.

The albright special is insane. A lot better than the uni knot.

I have been using the Albright special for over a year. This is the best connecting knot I've tried so far. It casts great and is strong. Also the knot is a Lot more compact than uni to uni knot.

Crazy Alberto...if it's good enough for stripers, then it'll work for bass.

Is it just me, or have some of you found that some lines are stronger using a uni to uni, and some are stronger using the alberto?

The copoly I use is stronger with a uni to uni connection. I have used the Alberto for a couple years now, but find with my copoly

brand, the uni to uni stronger. Sorry if i hijacked the thread, the OP did say fluoro..

I have used both the Seaguar knot http://www.seaguar.com/seaguar-community/seaguar-knot.htm crazy easy to tie and great for adding a short 3-5' leader. And the Alberto for joining longer ones. Both have performed perfectly for me.
