Thanks for that Beyonce . Thatís simple enough . Iíve heard heard that certain knots are a no no with fluorocarbon and didnít want to risk using the wrong one even though I thoroughly test .

Thanks .

Apologies, Iíve got you now. I was thinking of the Duo Fleck braid rather than the Sub Fleck leadless leader.

In this case I would splice a loop into the Duo Fleck then tie the X-Line to the spliced loop using a palomar knot. All very strong but also pretty low profile if itís weedy.

Thanks Beyonce . I have used lead core / lead free for ever and have a lot of confidence in this so wish to keep this the same . Just looking for a good , safe , reliable knot to attach to a loop in the sub fleck .

Thanks

What is the purpose of the sub fleck? If itís a leader I would look at a back to back grinner or a mahin knot.

I have been using a grinner knot to attach my mono to thinking anglers sub fleck via a small loop in the subfleck . I will be spooling up with xline for the first time and wondered whether I could carry on using a grinner knot , many thanks !
