Default Re: Bimini knot

I use the Bimini twist alot with large bite tippets and smaller test leaders. It gives a shock absorber type effect when you clip the loop in half and furl it loosely before tying it to the bite tippet. The biggest bite/test tippet difference I remember doing is a 30 lb. bite and 8 lb. test. tippets. It wasn't for Tarpon, but the shock absorber aspect of it may be something you may want to think about.
