I found this post because I was looking for info on failed Albright knots. I'm going back to the double uni-knot until someone can convince me that I'm missing something in the build of a modified-Albright (and I've watched about 25 videos on it so I think I have it right). Good luck.

Note this instruction in the post directly above yours... I've not had a modified Albright knot fail in over 5 years, and use a long enough leader that it's going through several guides on each cast.
