Dan New Jersey. Luke: Have you ever tested the Tactical Angler Power Clips vs. the non-slip loop knot? As for the UV knot cure, I have not tried that out so not sure how much it helps. The friction of the Duncan loop over the main line reduces its force over a (relatively) long chunk of line and the extra turn through the eye provides friction that keeps the stability of the knot from collapsing or allowing the line to slip around the eye and stretch at its weakest point.

We haven’t done detailed tests on it yet because we’re prioritizing knots that don’t require any sort of device to tie…. So after I’d first recommend that you use a lighter mainline relative to your leader (especially if you’re using spinning tackle), then the double uni is a great option.
