    I have allways used the blood knot ,in essence its almost like two opposing clinch knots tied on each end over the opposing lines,do a google search on how to tie it. I ain't savvy enough to post a link :wink::smile2:

    I've used blood knots for years and have no complaints at all, but experiment and find the one that you're most comfortable and confident with. Stay safe and stick a pig!!!:wink:

    Strong and low profile hwich is important if the line is going through rod eyes.

    I use other knots... but the uni is nice.....
    I use it also to make a "loop knot" to attach the hook allowing baitfish a little more freedom when attached to my leader.....
