Good info; I usually use a Palomar in the lighter lines I most frequently have spooled; sometimes a Double Uni, but that's a little harder for me than the Palomar, unless I'm tying something on where I can't easily get the loop of the Palomar over it (like a big jig).  I've noticed that the Palomar occasionally seems to break as I test it after tying & I see where someone mentions about the loops crossing--maybe that's what is happening to me.

I think I'll give some consideration to this new knot, as it does seem easy to tie, which is a big plus to me.

Back in early November, I used the Springer as tied by JC in the video and caught a 298.8# and a 321# YFT the first time I tried it. It’s that easy!
I was using 130# Seaguar Premier Fluoro to a Mustad 6/0 4x circle hook.

Looks about as simple as you can get.  I like it.

The Springer that landed my Super Cow. I like it because it goes through the eye twice, is small and very easy to tie. Try a few and see for yourself!

Good info guys,
I am tying  leaders for muskie/pike/sturgeon in St Clairs for next year with heavy line, I love the Springer knot, simple and effective. I think this will be my go to knot for leaders now
Danke!

I just made the knot on some 0.55mm mono, is easy to tie and seems very strong.

Wonder if it will work on braid?

I'm yet to find a knot that consistently retains a significant amount of strength when tieing braid directly to terminal tackle. My current doctrine is that braid should never be tied to anything except a mono/fluoro leader, due to the tiny diameter it's very good at cutting into itself.

I am a fairly lazy fisherman when it comes to tying leaders and have for quite some time been tying my braid directly to my terminal tackle without any adverse results.   I do use 80lb where 50lb should suffice.

I wouldn’t use a Springer with braid. It’d probably pull out. I’d want something with s lot more turns.

A little off topic, but has anyone ever tried or heard anything good/bad about the "Herter Knot?  Looks like it could work like a snell, but Geo. Herter was a good salesman above all else & I just wonder about this knot.
