The reverse Albright I developed for PP line company many years ago , the key to this knot being 100% is for ing it off a 25 turn binmini in your braid ! The mono is always laid over the braid since it digs into the braid . This knot if formed off a Bimini loop will knot fail . I fill i gaps with k ot sense glue !

Is this the same knot that goes by the name of No-Name knot, Yucatan knot, and Worm knot? If so I can attest for the strength of it, though I only use it in 30 lb. leaders and greater.

Maybe don't who calls a knot what but if these knots were similarly done and the braid is under the mono and they are tied off a double line probably sesame idea .

in any event the original knot is easy and fast , can be completed in a matter of seconds !

I know two years ago I had a stint of 4 knots that slipped 2 before fishing them and two after.

And then a bunch I couldn't cinch down......

I replaced my leader spool and it never happened again.  (it was an old 60lb wrist spool that had been submerged over and over again.  over the course of a pair of seasons)

 

I made the mistake of tying a polomar knot last night in 40lb off a pr knot....got hung up at the end of my cast and broke off a the reel.  On a positive note......I didn't have to worry about hanging up on the structure again...since i couldn't reach it.  :)    

Yep. Never use a true 90-100% line to leader knot IF the leader is stronger than the main line for fishing from shore. Main line breaking well away from the 90-100% line to leader knot when snagged is the reason. Had that problem with 95% FG knot strength in super thin Gliss and Nanofil. I had to use a weaker leader or use a 60% loop knot at the lure to ensure my break off will be at the lure.

 Yep, Bimini to Yucatan is often just as good or superior to FG in knot strength for braids that are 50 lbs and up.

 

True 100% line to leader knot AT the Yucatan part and could be made 100% overall IF the Bimini is 100%.

 

Most 25-30 turns Bimini average 60 to 80% in braid which is good considering that FG knot in 50 lbs braid and up is 65-70%.

After about 3 hours of fishing the other night and no hook-ups (****** night), I noticed my hydro minnow floating next to me, and realize my albright knot slipped... Now I don't want to get into a huge FG vs albright vs uni-uni know discussion, im just curious if others using powerpro superslick have had albright slip out on them.  It looked like a clean slip, but i'm not sure why, 10 wraps down, overlap backup, and cinch.. Wierd... I usually use uni-uni, but I was like ok, let's do this today, so i'm just curious...

 

Thoughts?

question was for Albright, but your tie sounds like Alberto.
