I've tried surgical, blood, small bimini's looped together---all without much success. It seems the braid still cuts through the mono on a hard pull, I've doubled the lines, I think I have tried everything, I want a windon leader, I'm trying that new method I read about in saltwater sportsman last month, hope it works------------------has anybody had any real success with any particular knot??
Albright knot, is the knot that works for me. Last resort, use a tiny spro swivel in the rating of your choice. Capt Burke, from the "Mad Gaffer" uses his own Knot, and that is super strong and never brakes. I still have not figured out how to tie Cpt. Burkes knot by myself.... yet
Try this uni to uni. It works great on braid to mono and also braid to braid. Easy to tie and no problem going through guides. I've never had it cut or break at the knot, line will break first! Good luck.
Wow, great response guys, I've tried all the knots except the Albright, but I will now. I have been tieing 30 braided to like 20 floro and it cuts through the floro almost everytime with a big fish on, thanks alot guys, really appreciate it--and what a great site for knots(animatedknots.com), thanks again, Leon
