This knot is originated from long-cast techniques.
A perfect shock-leader knot with no friction when passing through guides.
It can handle a mono shock leader as heavy as 100 lbs., and yet crossover to a very light line as light as 6 lbs. braided line.

    A perfect uni knot ,yes uni when use of tube instead of nail (wd40 straw my fav threader too) pull your knot tight then pull knot apart to pull centre of knot tight then pull ends again and it draws even all the way through ,as in even loops all the way through like an albright with no high points ,nice melt on mono as don't cool it other than ambient air or it will crystallise(go white) ,and for all the haters, it's the smallest strongest knot that glides through eyes ,tell me what knot they are using and we'll make a video of the difference in size , and others who say the knots bad then you need to learn to tie the knot proper ,it's a hard knot to master getting tight all the way through, if it's not right it'll fail

    That’s a nail knot. Fly casters use it to attach leader to fly line. The application pictured the connection is only as good as the melted end of the monofilament shock leader. Lp

    This is like a snell and just burning the mono end to create a "stopper". Very nice. I'm gonna try it for mono to mono for use with a level wind.

    Is this similar to the FG knot without the need for 3 hands?

    A lot easier just using something like 60lb to 80lb braid straight through no shock leader no knot…
    Then just have you 10lb or 20lb snood…

    It would be a pity if you were to keep the knot in focus rather than the table.

    I've been using this knot for about 2 years now since I discovered it and it works great. My leaders are usually 18-24 inches so I dont have to deal with it going through the guides. Also, I'd recommend that you use at least 40 lb mono/fluoro for this to work properly. I've caught many big fish using this knot and even broke off snags without the knot failing. Its just as strong as any other uni knot.

    Neat little knot, but I prefer the self tightening properties of the FG.

    Nail knot.
    Completely useless for casting if it has to pass through guides.
    Even more useless for heavy reef fishing.

    Why would you tie 60 lb mono to 20 lb braid

    This looks very much worth a try. I wonder how it will hold up in a long fight against a fish that is stretching the mono. Will the knot loosen when the mono stretches thinner???

    I have heard guys say not good for fishing only tournament casting…..I don't know but I always seem to have the shock knot tapping the guides, using the standard knot most recommend….cuts down on distance for sure

    hi Kyle, thanks for all those great inputs and found them very interesting.
    Snelling had tail end hidden underneath the loops and  spread out without overlapping each others. uni knot has a crossover line on top of the loops, I believe snelling is cleaner and uni is more convenient on the field. Both of them will work.
    I believe the tag end of an uni still pointing outward.
    Yes, burning the mono will weaken the mono. But when you compare a weaken 60 lbs mono vs. 20 lbs. braid, mono still wins.
    Saliva definitely a plus, especially when you tighten the snell/uni knot before merging with the mono. Sorry, couldn't show saliva lubrication part on video, but thanks for pointing it out.
    Again, thanks for watching and precious input.

    Interesting. I've never considered using a nail knot around mono. It has a very similar profile to the red phillips knot, but the red phillips can be tied without the lighter or the straw, so it's more practical on the water. Why use a nail knot instead of a uni knot? A uni knot would would have your braid tag end pointing to the reel and further reduce drag while going through the guides. Also, does burning the mono cause it to weaken? We all use saliva to lube up knots before pulling them tight because if we didn't, the heat from friction supposedly weakens the mono, right?
