Default Re: Knot Instruction.

When I was shown the knot the braid was not doubled, and it went 7 times around going out and 11 coming back. A lot of guys are spooling up their spinning gear with 50 lb braid and using this knot to attach a 50 lb floro leader and casting lures to blue fin tuna. I saw a guy land a 75 lb blue fin with this set up yesterday, believe me, that knot was put to the test with that fish. I've caught many big stripers, but this was the first time I witnessed the tuna thing, it is a hole new world! Drags are set to 13 lbs and 150 yds would peel of in the blink of an eye. The knot held tight!
