    Default Pline Cxx snell knot prob

    I got some of the CXX to try in 30lb. But when snelling it seems to slip and not bite down on the shank like other co-polymers I've tried. And that with 7 wraps. Anyone else have this problem? Other knots seem to hold good just not comfortable with the way it snells.

    You need to wet that line good before you pull the knot tight

    I always put a good bit of spit on it before drawing it up. Might be the type of snell I'm useing.

    It is kind of a hard line with quite a bit of memory, extend your tag end out about a " or more, then wet and clinch down, then trim the tag.

    This is the type of snell I use. Only thing different is I just hold the loop up even with gap on hook. Makes it easier to hold loop and keep wraps even.

    But I'm practicing this one. Looks to be a better snell with the lead and tag line protected by wraps.

    What type of snell are you using Kenny?

    #1,

    but I tie mine a little different,,You can also tie a knot in the tag end and then pull your main line to tighten it and the knot will snug up against the bottom of the snell,, It will not slip on you no more.
