Best knots for swivels?

Post by Mattblack » Tue Feb 06, 2018 7:45 pm

Hi Guys,
Whats the best knot to use when tying your mono line to a swivel?...(I've always used a 1/2 blood knot, but they aren't 100%)

Improved clinch knot has never let me down and it's easy.

Uni knot for the win! Simple and strong. Blood knots are for beginners till it lets them down on a quality fish.

I use Centauri knot for all my mono connections. Quick to tie. Rarely fails.

Ha! Thats me! (although Ive been tying blood knots for over 30 years) Apart from losing big fish, my eyes are starting to go as well, so time to break this bad habit.

Clinch knot has never once let me down on snapper, gummy sharks, rays, seven gills and it’s very easy and quick to do
