Default Re: Knot to swim bait and iron

I have changed knots a few times trying to find my favorites, this is where I landed.

We built a knot tester so that we could find out if one knot was Superior to another

Braid to fluoro, FG knot has the smallest and easiest through the guides plus it's the strongest of the knots I tested. Has a learning curve but there is a fairly simple way to tie it if you Google around you can find it. It's far superior to the Albright, which I used to tie.

Mono or fluoro to a ring, Palomar for ease, strength, size. I prefer it over San Diego jam which I used to use.

For tieing a fixed loop in fluoro, perfection loop is my fav. I tie it by making the loops and laying the line in-between while pinching the whole thing, ties easy and is strong.
