I usually vary the number of turns I do depending on the diameter of the line but have problems with stiff leader material. Anymore than 2 turns and I cannot get the knot to cinch down. Should I use a different knot?

Bay Rat, a regular clinch knot would be easier to get to tighten up and sit right with larger diameter line. Do you have any problems using the regular over the improved?
