Knot for clips


Recommended Posts

Hello raiders Im wondering what knot you use to tie on clips (no swivel) I was using uni but on a few snags busted of at the clip. With 30lb leader the diameter of the wire in the clip I am using is smaller than the diameter of the black magic leader. Does it cut through? confidence is everything so let me know.

You shouldn't be tying to something with a thinner diammeter than your leader. Ie I think you have answered your own question.

Trying to keep it unobtrusive the clip is rated to 56 lb the leader and main 30 lb anyway Im going with the surgeons knot (Palomar) as it gives a double strand at contact.
