I recently heard John Collins talk about the Seven Seven knot on the radio, as his go to knot for solid spectra to spectra coonections.
Anybody know how to tie this knot and can explain it, have a diagram or video link? I have looked a around a bit with no luck, maybe it has another name?
thanks.

    Sold my Parker. You can find me on the Red Rooster.
    Could it be the RP knot with 7 wraps down and 7 wraps up? John Collins does use the RP not, or at least he used to.

    No it's not a 7 turn RP.
    John said he learned the knot from Roy Rose and its a little involved, but 100%.
    Roy refers to the knot as "Roy's Mistake" because of the way he learned it early on.

    John say that some of his reels have a couple of these knots in the line and he just leaves them in because they are so reliable. Again it's just for solid to solid spectra connections.

    May you call call the Office of the Independence. Johns wife is there, and John is there a lat also. I have talked to him 3-4 times when I call. Let us know what you find out. Maybe he can make a video to go along with the others he has done for knots.

    I have seen John tie it (he was showing me), but that was a couple years ago. Not the simplest knot, but works very well for connecting two size's of braid.

    Fished the Shogun several years back. Bruce, Norm, and Tommie Miles (Gunny) He tied the back to back Uni knot, spectra to fluoro. Called it the 9 to 5. Like nine turns with the braid, five turns with the leader material.

    Sounds like a Banker's Knot to me.

    Bill,

    I will stick with depositing/deploying the FG knot at da Bank.
