We received information of a cool new knot from Sunline about a month ago. Word was that several folks in the Sunline offices back in Japan were using this knot and loved how strong it was in the breaking strength tests. So we asked them to send instructions on how to tie it and let us play with it for a while.
The knot is unique in that the harder you pull, there is no change in the tightness of the knot. So you don’t have to worry about slick braided line slipping through as the knot is pulled and tag ends are pulled in tighter to the knot. You don’t have to worry with fluoro digging into itself either because it’s not a cinch knot. It’s basically jamming double half hitches under themselves.
So to demonstrate how to tie it for other readers we built a diagram with large rope and a comparable sized object to a lure with the bigger line, in this case a gallon jug of Lucas 2-Cycle Marine Oil.
