Note: If you never saw the original video or the knot contest we did, click here to see that:
But we also received a handful of questions and concerns about the FG Knot after many anglers starting using it for their first time.
The main “negative” comment on the FG Knot was that it took too long to tie. But even though Luke did take 5 minutes to tie it on the FG tutorial (because he was going super slow to show all of the steps), we do it so much quicker in real life.
So we decided to put our money where our mouth is and have Luke tie the FG Knot as quick as he could (while under the pressure of a camera on him).
Note: When the camera wasn’t rolling, he did the FG Knot in about 48 seconds.
Check out how he ties this super strong braid to leader knot in under a minute.
Finally, if you know of any braid to leader knots that are stronger or outperforming the FG Knot, please let us know in the comments so we can do some knot strength contests on them.
