That can be very normal. Some times its easiest to do 5 wraps then cinch it down then do 5 more & cinch down etc. This can help make a better performing & more pleasing to the eye FG Knot ... Jeff

With heavy braid you have to cinch the wraps down way more often than light braid. Light braid I'll cinch it maybe every 5-6 wraps, heavier (65lb+) I'll crank it down every 2-3. For 80lb+ I prefer a PR knot tied with a bobbin anyway.

Starting to think the brand of braid can affect this a lot... Jeff

When I saw this knot being used for Yellowtail the first time I was amazed how strong it is.    Many guys here now use it,
