So I have the tieing it part down perfect but I gotta wonder if it passing back and forth through the guides over and over will wear on the spectra and weaken it? How much use do yall get out of one knot before retieing?
ive never had one break....so i use it until the leader is too short and i want a longer leader. i super glue whichever closing knot i use. the no half-hitch method is nice and not very difficult. it more or less closes with a nail knot. i just super glue that part.
The PR knot is known to start coming undone or fray at the half hitches of the knot when passing through the guides. Some kind of glue on it will lessen it but eventually will start happening. I have casted the knot to where all the half hitches have come undone and only the serves were holding and the knot still held. I did redo it when I noticed.
I have my line setup with 2-3 wraps of leader on my spool and 4-5 foot out from tip.
