Here's a few youtube links (there's many more) which show the various methods to tie the FG knot.
For years now I've been storing my hooks inside 35 mm film canisters. To identify the hooks, I place stickers on the tops and side of each...
Knot 4 Hooks: Spangler. Low profile,strong. Will occasionally use single San
Diego (but single line twice through the hook eye).
Knot 4 Jigs:...
I've got one...just texted you.
WTG! The fish on the left looks like it could be a BET.
For light flouro to mono connections I've had good results from a 6 turn Surgeons Knot...moisten well.
This will work fine. The knot works well with lines of equal/unequal line ratings. You really need to wet it well before tightening down.
Here you go...16th post down shows pics.
Do a search and read other threads about knots...lots of great reading.
1) Braid to mono = Modified Albright (aka RP, John Collins, Alberto,...
Are you referring to the 322? It's the same width as a 220.
I also use the 35 mm film canisters...#6-7/0 in 94150's...#1-5/0 in circles...something like that. All the hook canisters take up one Plano box...
I too use old 35 mm film canisters. Just post the size and type of hook (i.e. 3/0 ringed circle) onto a sticky label and yer done. I then put all...
Congrats...saw that on ebay. Not many BNIB 36 year old reels around!
Not interested in trades...thanks. I've always liked the 4.6 gears in my NL533. I've never had a problem with landing the typical 20-40 lb...
Not interested in selling on ebay. I only posted the link because you asked about the color.
Yes, the price was reduced to $475. Here's a link to an ebay red 533 that sold....
No thanks...not at this time.
Yes, 4.6 gearing.
Large ss bearing caps on both sides with metal threads...no plastic here.
This reel is a cross between a "newer" P and an S...

Thanks NN...Merry Christmas to you and yours.

All 3 of those knots are good. A 7 turn RP is the quickest. I'd have to say a 15 turn Bob Sands is my preference. It's a Pena knot except instead...
I remain old school...30 year old reels and fiberglass rods. I also use mono to flouro...I've never had a need for spectra but then again my trips...
Did you mean P235? Which 300 size did you get? Did you get the 5+1 drag stack upgrade? Tib frames? BTW, I tested one of my P300 sized reels with...
I'm assuming you got a P322-F...correct? If you paid next to nothing for the reel AND it's a true all original P from the 80's, you...
If I understand your question, there is a way to accomplish making the mono/flouro tag end stronger.
Put the mono/flouro and braid lines...

"I said feed me more lobster...NOT feed on me!"
Nope...I'm waiting for the prices to go up so I can fund a good portion of a long range trip...8-)
To the OP, I too would want to know your definition of substandard. If you meant lacking in technology, then yes, they are lacking. As to why the...
