Chris I,ve always used either the stren, or double uni as a connection, and after reading the earlier replies tied an improved albright as a trial this morning; after the one tying of the knot it will now be my knot of choice.Chris said:i might have to give the improved albright a try based on the posts to date.
Really? That one has never failed me on my SP rig, which is where I use it, if trolling I use a swivel. The only time I get knot failures is at the Hook/Lure/Jig end, I am experimenting with new knots for that end, though once I get out on the water I usually revert back to the old knot, which I now re-tie every 2 to 3 hook ups.Chris said:i have had it fail when joining a much stronger leader when compared with the braid. 6lb braid to 10lb leader no problems but 8lb braid to 30lb leader and the double uni knot with bimini twist is my choice although i might have to give the improved albright a try based on the posts to date.
