I only use the uni knot but for me the most important thing about a knot is... a bad knot tied well is better than a good knot tied bad. Just my 2c

I still use the palomar with up to .60mm but instead of trying to push a doubled loop through the hook's eye I take the slightly longer way of pushing one strand through and the doubling back and then carry on like normal - remember to moisten the line before pulling it tight

There are only 4 types of knots I use daily:

1.mono to mono - fig 8
2.dropshot braid to florocarbon line - albright knot
3.braid backing to mono - catspaw knot
4.mono to heavy leader line - bimini twist with a fig 8...

No stress no fuss!!!!

Makes for some interesting reading. I note that the Maxima line that so many of us use locally is one of the lines that tested the poorest. Makes you think.....
