Great articles by both. What do you tie the nail knots with?

Great articles all around. Mike's grouper amazes me every time I see it.

Thanks Boss. I have not put the 350gr head on anything yet. I will bring it for show and tell.

I still have not received mine... :?

Boss...If I knew you had some T17 I would have "borrowed" some...

Tie the nail knots with any small mono like 8 to 12 pound is fine. You can also use Loon UV knotsense on the nail knot if you have no Pliobond. Mono running line sinks best (I have Suffix Elite rigged to a 1150 and it is the ultimate sinker) but personally a thin intermediate line does almost as well and is much more user friendly...especially in cold weather...Thanks all...

mb82...the nail knots are enough. They only keep the mono from fraying. The strength is in the Chinese Finger Puzzle braided mono. Even with no nail knots the running and sinking lines stay inside the braided line and will not come apart.

Just got mine and saw the pic have not read it.

Great pic of TLT with the jackster!

Kendall, the world has been waiting for that graphic on attaching a head to running line. That Underwood guy
is fanastic.

Glad you recommended 12 to 18 inches of braided mono.
I have read where others say 9 to 10 inches. I like the added assurance of a longer connection. More surface area for the chinese-grip to bite down on both lines.

The best "How To" I have seen in any mag.

My first (T-14 to Rio intermed running line) creation was a
great success, thanks to your posts and Brian's input on the best coldwater running line to use.

I have components now for a "tropical" Baja version. Just
need a spare hour or two to assemble.
