    I am starting to use this knot as my main connection to hook or lure. My question is how many turns does everyone use for each line size? Thanks for any input.

    Good knot! I use 7 turns typically up to 60#.....Have you used the double SD? It's big, but has never failed me.

    I haven't used the double yet but might. How many turns do you use with 80# and above?

    Have not used it with 80# mono.
    If you do the double, just make sure it's clean. You can also just go through at the hook or swivel, (not returning at the top) which leaves 2 tags low and 1 tag high, or regular with 3 tags high. Good luck.
