Could the improved clinch somehow break? The palomar is doubled line on the clip.

Any knot can break. The knot is always a weak point. As I stated I myself prefer an improved clinch when tying mono. Does not make it better, just my preference.I also said that a Palomar is certainly fine.

I've had better results using a knot that only has the line going through the TA clip once. It seems to fit better in the tip.

 

My knot of choice is the Uni Knot with 3 or 4 turns depending on mono lb test.

 

Edit- I should clarify that no line twice through knots have failed, the single line knots just seem to sit in the TA clip better.

I'm certainly not a boy scout when it comes to tying knots, but I love the palomar knot and use it whenever I can. The ease of it just makes it too convenient especially when in the dark, hands frozen, doing a balancing act, etc.

Basically... any time a palomar can be used, I use it. Otherwise it's a uni type or uni combo or Alberto. I don't use swivels. Have not for many years.

I'm going with the clinch. With heavier material, like 50lb, 3-4 turns are plenty. It's a small, neat knot, and like TLap said, it sits on the clip well. My leaders have never failed on me. My braid knot always breaks first.
