Re: Nylon Leader to Fire Line


I agree, there is no need to do the Bimini Twist with the bristol knot.

My 14lb fireline breaks at higher then 8kg (18lb) when I tie it with a bristol knot to 20lb nylon. Fireline typically breaks well above the rated ‘strength’ to compensate for the poor knot strength. Often unknoted fireline breaks at 2-3x what the package claims.
