    Hi Dave
    I didn't read the other responses but trust me on this one.
    Use the 3 turn uni for everything 80-130 and even 150 seaguar. There is no easier knot , no smaller knot and stronger knot. Trust Fishy on this one.

    Hey Lew this is a pretty cool knot....I just tried it 3 or 4 times and it's super easy to tie in 135#....the Springer/jansik...easier for me than the Spangler...but I'm sure I can manage the Spangler as well....but not sure anything is easier than the 3 turn Uni......

    Does anyone know does having two wraps around the eye of the hook .....Spangler...and others....really contribute to overall better connections?


    Thanks for all the comments!

    As long as a knot does not slip, all knots will do the job. Double or single. The issue will be when the fish will chew you off.

    If you want, you can pull your hardest on a rod with 100# and any knot you like against anything that does not have teeth.

    IMO putting two wraps thru the eye is just one more thing that can cause a knot to fail...I attempt to keep things as simple as possible....I use one wrap, no problems so far.

    Dave,

    Multiple wraps around the hook ring (I only use ringed hooks for sardines & Mackerels) makes the connection stronger depending on the knot. The ring line wraps provide stability and cushion for the main line wraps.

    Knots are a personal preference. I have not seen a smaller, more effective and easier to tie hook knot than the Spangler. I use the Uni for mono, but for me the Spangler just makes more sense for large diameter fluorocarbon lines.

    On the Spangler when you tie it right is it supposed to have the two lines side by side? Ie not crossed as they go through the hook?

    Uni knots works as good for 2# as it does for 130#! Just doesn't need as many twist as diameter increases!

    99% of the time the two loop knot will not cross. If you use three loops thru the eye, or ring it tends to cross. In big string it is easy to pop the crossed strand back in place. It us usually the middle loop that need to be placed back to the middle. The two loop version just does not cross.
