Yup. It would break at the knot about 5-10lbs less than others I tried with 40+ floro. I've been testing knots quite a bit and starting drags with scales for the last couple years due to pushing things harder with so cal trips and a few bigger fish hooked up here.

For albies it probably doesn't matter, breaks usually occur due to sharks or frayed line in my experience there. On 30# test it was statistically the same as sdj, doubled eye improved clinch, etc. A quick consistent tied knot is probably more important for albies here though.
