I searched and did not find this specific topic and am interested in the Supreme Bass Fishing Court of the TFF opinions. I am a braid virgin and like the idea of having a 6 - 10' leader (mono or fluoro) for many reasons but haven't made the plunge just yet. Look forward to the poll and comments.

FG - Crazy Alberto - Other
multiple choice, up to 2 choices
FG (24%, 12 Votes)
Crazy Alberto (31%, 16 Votes)
Other - Please specify (43%, 22 Votes)
I don't use or believe in braid. (2%, 1 Votes)
Total Votes: 51

Lefty Kreh leader knot. You won't find an easier knot with it's strength and it is so small.


Sinner. Far from perfect. Forgiven.

Triple overhand surgeons knot. Absolutely the easiest and strongest knot you can tie for flouro to braid, or mono to braid. Take it to the bank! popcorn

I've found it to be very strong, but kinda thick even with light lines. It catches a bit on some of my small spinning rod line guides, cuts casting distance down some compared to thinner knots. If your rods don't have micro or quasi-micro guides then no worries with the double uni.

Just watch videos and try different knots. Some of these knots being suggested are an absolute beating to tie on the water. Decide for yourself which you want to tie on the water. The FG knot is a total beating on the water. Sure, easy to tie from your dining room table, but not on a rocking boat in the water.

That's no joke. Awesome knot when done properly but an absolute p.i.t.a.

It's not too hard to tie either. It needs a little line condom to go over it. grin

I can tie the surgeons knot with my eyes closed.

The FG is probably better if you test it but I've used the surgeon on 8 and 10 pound line for a long time with no complaints. I don't know that I've ever broken the line at knot. I try to retie every trip but sometimes forget.
Thats with a 6 to 7 foot leader.

Yup !

^^

Used for saltwater fishing for years! Up it to four wraps for tuna fishing, so 3 wraps should be good enough for bass fishing! Doesn't get any easier.


I like my fishing like a whino likes his wine!
