I've never used these before. How many times do you do the loop to loop? I won't be using more than 20# of drag. Snagged, you're an old f--- also, what do you use?

make sure when you pull them tight- you grab down the line PAST the loop- or your lines wont be straight. one side of the loop will be loose and the other tight... I looped mine 3-4 times.

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.
