    I have spent the better part of today (5-6 hours) tying both of these knots with 40 lb mono to 50 lb spectra and have been unable to acheive a breaking strength of more than 15 lbs. I have had the knot unravel, spectra breaks just before the knot and the mono breaks just behind the knot. Should I expect more than 15 pounds or am I just not tying them correct?

    What is the name of the knot where you tie a uni in the mono and ten wraps up and ten wraps down in the spectra, then pull spectra tight?

    ive never had an albright break on me during real life fishing situations, so ive never thought to check, but I have faith in it

    Albright tag should go out the way it came into the looped mono, so that the mono "U" at the end of the spectra wraps have both strands of spectra parallel. Otherwise it slips. I don't tie a knot with the mono when I use the Albright, up to 60#. Above 60, I serve with nail knots.

    try a bimini in the spectra and a worm knot in the mono/fluoro

    I use a modified Albright and finish with a 3 turn uni knot. I have never had a failure.........yet......:rofl:

    What I've seen is they double the spectra with a seven turn surgeons knot first, then do the albright/RP knot with the doubled spectra. Spectra going in/out mono loop the same direction. I personally use a modified Pena.

    when i tie the albright without a bimini first the spectra breaks just outside of the knot . that sound right?

    This makes up 70% of all the breaks and like I said it averages right around 15 pounds on my scale.
