Ive never had an issue with dropper loops failing ……..in fact I use it to join mainline to shock leader , doubling up the mainline and trimming the ends of the drop loop off clean …..hasnt let me down in 15years ..and VERY quick and easy to tie

When making a trace , I like to cut 1 side of the dropper loop off , and use a uni/clinch knot to put the hook on the now single strand ……

Mind you Im not going all out to rip 100 huge fish from the sea like some commercial fisherman ….Im simply after a little sport and a fresh feed …of quality easting fish ….

If I was chasing something big , or at a comp , sure I’d bulk up and take no chances …….
