Good knot for 50 lb fluoro?
« on: June 12, 2020, 03:52:34 pm »
I usually use  trilene knot and it stays solid, but went yesterday thought my leaders and both 50 lb ones had knots loose after the winter. Was easy to tighten up but first time I see something like this. Maybe there is a better knot for a really thick line?

I use the reverse clinch knot when using larger diameter lines like your 50lb and never had any issues.

Springer knot.  Easy to tie and cinches up easily.

I use a snell knot for my hooks and a Palomar for attaching to swivels. Never had a knot come undone yet.

There are many great knots but I like the palomar, has never failed, great for large diameter line, easy to tie always but especially with cold hands, flawless on braid, mono, fluorocarbon.   There cant be an easier stronger knot to tie I donít think, Springer is good but palomar is way faster and easier imo, moisten well to help avoid week points.  Good luck.

I use the centauri or triple o knot for 60 lb mono especially when cod fishing.  It's a very neat slip style knot easy and quick to tie. I modify it with 2 passes through the hook or swivel eye when using 30 lb or less mono.

Just to throw it out there, Iíll add that even though I have my favourite knots, I just canít pull them tight enough anymore in the large test lbs. So Iím crimping everything now from 40lb and up with a swagger tool and itís great, very small profile and it collects less fleas too.  I gave a 40lb leader to a friend to test in his shop and no matter what he did he could not break it.  Some I make with a bit of a loop, some snug up like a knot, depends on the set up.  I find with artificial herring strips, a tiny loop works amazing with the trailing treble, because there is a little play, the treble stays closer to the center of the tail of the strip due to its own weight as it spins and the hook up rate increased over the snellíd treble.
