nope but the knot was easy, so I tried it on a 20lb mono to a 50lb floro leader and then tested it. It worked beautifully and alberto knots sometimes start slipping on me for some reason, but this doesn't. So I don't see why I shouldn't give it a shot this upcomming season. I also tried it on braid to a 50lb floro leader but it didn't work as well.

"I also tried it on braid to a 50lb floro leader but it didn't work as well." chrowski

do you think it would change the strenght of the knot if you tried doing the figure 8 with the braid or the mono/fluro when connecting the leader??

when you take the line and tie the double overhand knot, pull slightly and make it look like an 8........would the knot strength change if you did the 8 with the braid or the mono (i might still be saying it wrong, if so i'll just try an experiment with it myself and see if i'm retarded)

the braid is what is suppose to be wrapped around the leader and back out and tightened; if you took the leader and wrapped it around the braid it would likely not tie right. is this the case?

ok i tried it both ways.....if you do the figure 8 w/ mono (i suppose that would be the same for fluro) its good.....if you do it w/ braid you need to make another overhand knot in the tag end or the braid will slip out of the knot....also make sure you really seat that figure 8 once you pass the double line through

The albright knot works good with the braid, just lock the tag end of the braid using a uni-knot (3 wraps).
