very hard to break off setting hook with crank. you may have too stiff of a rod or you are putting slack in line before. this is just my opinion, but i never use a palomar on flouro either, just the jam knot.

Interesting title to your thread. What does breaking off lures have to do with "Free Floaters on Palestine"?

How long had it been since a re-tie? Fishing in heavy cover?

I don't use a Palomar with FC. That being said, I don't use FC with crank baits either.

Both of these. Use some copoly or mono for cranking so you get a little stretch. And if you use a palomar knot and it's not perfect, it will cut into itself with fc line.

use Mono while cranking.....also...if using flouro (it's ok to do so)...use the San Diego Jam knot...works great.

The only knot I use is the Palomar and it does not cut the line. I used to have a problem on hook sets but it wasn't the line, it was me trying to break their backs and rip their lips off. I use flouro with small cranks and never have a problem. This may not be it but when you tie cranks make sure your line doesn't tie where the split ring ends are. They will eventually work around your line and all the way out or the end will rub your knot till it breaks.
