For Sport Fishing's knot contest, 30 lb Sufix Performance Braid and 50 lb. Yo-Zuri Pink Fluorocarbon were used. Larger materials were used in these photos for demonstration purposes. The beauty of this knot is not only in strength but in function. This knot is probably the most seamless and streamlined knot of its type. It may take you a while to get the hang of it, but you'll see that it is worth the effort.
