Uni to Uni Knot

This is an ideal fishing knot to join Leader to Mainline. Whether you are using a Braid or Mono Mainline, this connection will suit connecting various leader materials. Over Wrapping of the outer Wraps is paramount if you are to have any success with this knot. If the outer loop runs straight, overall strength will be compromised. Possibly one of the most used fishing knots in the world. 

Overall Rating: 7/10

  • Easy to tie, accessible for young children.
  • Can be used for Braid and Monofilament and Fluorocarbon.
  • Prone to slippage if the incorrect cinching or overwrapping is not present.
  • If the Mono or Fluoro leader is not snug on Braid line prior to cinching the Leader material will engulf the Braid Knot. Based on a Granny knot with multiple wraps, this tends to allow multiple crossover point within the knot. This in turn will weaken the Braid as it has multiple areas to cut into under tension.
