When I first started long range, I used a 3 way swivel setup. We got into some bigger yellowtail one day, and I lost two in a row. Taro grabbed my rod, showed me how to do it with a spider hitch, no more problems. Two things I've changed since: double San Diego to the hook, Palomar knot doesn’t hold as well if one of the two lines gets busted in the rocks, and I use a short piece of 20 pound line to attach the sinker with simple overhand knot to loop. You get stuck, one good tug, reel in, attach new sinker, right back at it. I use a Graphfighter 765 H and 60lb line. I'm going to try Jeff’s way this spring on my 8 day, it looks really clean. Always learning on this site.
