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!
