    What kind of knots do you use. I use palamar knots almost exclusively. It may just be a hold over from bass fishing, but I can't remember ever having one fail.

    I also use the Palomar knot. It's just the simplest and it has never failed me.

    i usted to use the clinch knot, i never lost a fish with it but now since i am chasing much bigger fish, i think i am gonna go to the palomar or the improoved clinch, imo both are strong knots, but i used to just use the clinch not the improoved version

    I use the clinch knot.

    No matter which one you use I would reccomend super glue gel on them. I have done that for the last 2 years and never had a knot give out or break. Just a little suggestion, get the quick drying stuff. Works great.

    Hope this helps.

    I use palomar and improved clinch knots. My dad taught me the palomar, but I like the improved clich because it is easy to tie. Both are good.

    Polmar for me. I use alot of 3-way swivel rigs and the polmar allows me to cut the tagend off real short. There's alot less potential for slippage for a polmar that had been wetted and pulled tight.

    After using the trilene knot for years, I have switched to the polomar just because it holds very good and is eaiser to tie, for me any way, the old fingers don't work like they use to.
