Can one of yall tell me what would be an appropriate knot for joining 2 equal diameter spectre (non-hollow) lines? Thanks in advance. Jason

UNI to UNI but I make mine with a double line. Not a loop, just double up the line and do a UNI to UNI.

Worked so far!

What pound test?
How strong do you want it to be after you add the connection?
Spinning reel, conventional?
How long a segment are you adding?

Uni to uni is okay if you can live with a roughly 40-50% strength reduction.
Put a drop of Loctite 406 on each side of the finished uni and it will be very strong.

Uni to uni. I noticed if I tied the uni to uni dry it will break fairly easily but if I put some spit on the knots before pulling the lines tight the line seems just as strong as solid line.

You can use a short 4 or 5' piece of hollow core to achieve a 100% connection.

I'm a big fan of splicing hollow-core GSP braid--in fact I've switched to it. When you use it to splice two pieces of braid, do you serve the two ends of the splice or just glue them? (What glue do you use?)
