i have also stopped tying terminal knots. i came acrooss a rapala thing tried it out, didn’t like the price. found some 140lb single strand trace wire and made up a jig and now they cost me about 10cents each. have tested with spring balances up to 35lb and braid to 15kg, won’t break below breaking strain. have been using them for 3 years now and haven’t had any terminal breaks by fish.
