Swivel Knots
« on: September 26, 2011, 02:23:55 PM »

Hello all,

I have recently started using a swivel when Dshotting to help prevent line twists.

There are 3 knots that have to be tied obviously and I use the palomar knot with the hook ....what knots should I use with the swivel?

Is it possible to use palomar's for all 3 and if so should I tie in a specific order?

Also how many inches or feet should I tie the swivel above the hook?

Thanks all.

I use a Palomar for all three. First I tie a swivel on the line. Then I cut it of 2and half to 3 feet up the line. Then I tie the swivel back on the line, then the hook.

I do the same thing.  I use the same method for rigging up a C-Rig.  I use a Polamar 95% of the time or more.

Have you ever tried Zona's shark knot. He, and I know for sure Gerald Swindel use this knot. I filmed him tying the knot at DNR Sports a while back. I also have the video on my blog page.

What knot do you use? Uni to uni? Surgeons?
