Need some advise on knots for 40-50 lb. mono. I have used palomar on lighter lines, but the above wts. don't seem to like this knot.

Try improved cinch or San Diego knot to swivels/plugs/spinners etc. and egg loop knot to single hooks or double/triple hook rigid tie mooching leaders. Moisten knots before you pull them tight. Any knot source book or web page should have good directions. Hope this helps.

Improved clinch and lots of spit. It'll never break....unless your spit is really acidic :shocked:

Trilene knot,found it on the knot page of a tide book,easy to tie,really strong. I think it said something like 97%,anyway haven't had a failure yet.

Palomar, it works on large line verry well and you have a small knot that Will Not Slip or brake. Just wet it before you tighten it. It is almost the only knot I have used for 3 years now and have never had one fail.

I agree with Sturg. Tom...the Palomar Knot is the best for holding the line strength. I have tested this myself on a machine and it is quick to tie and still works on 40-50 lb mono. Just make sure to wet it down.

The uni knot for everything... It works by tightening down on itself...

I have used just your standard cinch knot for years, it works always, dont try any fancy knots, just twist, put it in th bottom twist, moisten and tighten, it works every time, I like about 5 or 6 twists, but three is enough.

dogrobber,
I'm with freespool on this one. I've been using the double trilene knot for years and it is fast and easy to tie.
God Bless

Thanks all,
I now have the tugging sensation that can ONLY be relieved by sitting in my Boulton @ Chan. marker 75-77 & waiting for one of those beautiful nooks to play games w/ me. I will try all of these knots, & thanks again. If you see me ( Second Chance) yell or something.
