Gamma copolymer knot type?

4 posts in this topic

I've always used mono or fireline, but decided to give the gamma copolymer a shot on 1 of my jigging set-ups. My question for those who've been using the gamma is what type of knot are you using? Thanks in advance for your opinions.

I always use a palomar knot and it works well with Gamma line.

snoman, Think of Gamma as a Mono.. tie which ever knot you have the most confidence in.. For some its an Improved Clinch.. like Jim, many its the palomar. I prefer the Eugene Bend.

Any knot you are ok with will work, just wet it well as you should with any mono...to keep from burning the line and weakening it during the clinch of the knot.

The heat generated by the knotting process is the primary culprit in weakening of a mono knot...so wet it well... and your good.
