What knott.......

Recommended Posts

I have changed the line on my Musky rods to Power Pro.

Trolled the Kawarthas last weekend and had something slam my bait....and.....

snap my line. I am running 40 lb PP.

 

Question: Is there any particular knot that works better for this line?

 

I'm using a "palomer" (SP) knot right now.....wondering if this is the cause of my problem.

 

Thanks for any help......

The palomar is the best knot for Power Pro Meely, but your better off moving up to 80 - 100 # line.

Another thing to watch for that's too often forgotten on braided line is the little bit of fraying that happens near the leader. Changes the strength rating of the line a lot. So, re-tie often.

 

Just my 2c.

Meely, very important to spit all over your knot as you are drawing it tight. You'll be able to tell if the knot is drawing up properly.
