Just heard about the F G knot and it does appear to be very nice. There is an online instructional video.

Been tying the Improved Albright - looks identical to the Crazy Alberto. Hasn't failed yet.

i always used the back to back uni-knot, or also called the double uni-knot. I tied 50# braid to anything from 20 to 50# mono.

That does look pretty simple and doable in the wind and a rocking boat. I've been doing the double Uni for awhile now.

Back to back or double uni knot is my go to knot. It works well, fast and easy to tie, goes through the guides well and has been proven to be a strong reliable knot for many years.

I’ve been using the Alberto... no problems there at all...

I’ll have to try the F G... weird looking knot.. but I like the 3 cinches it finishes with.

Google the GT knot....rated the strongest braid to mono knot...100%. Stronger than the FG knot and I have used the FG for some time now, but the GT is easier to tie and for that reason alone is a go to knot for me.

GT knot is the highest knot strength to break test ratio.
