Snagged, I was wondering about a single loop. thanks for your response. I wouldn't have called you an old f--- if I weren't one also. I saw the allcoast post about breaking strengths. I don't plan to pull hard enough to break anything.

I don't use 50 for anything, 80# is my minimium for serious offshore. I have and do use the surgens loop for my 65# that I use for snapper fishing and use a swivel to attach my leader.
I have also used the Austrailian braid to form a loop with no failures.
