Default Re: Leader to tippet loop to loop

I do loop2loop all the time Too easy not to.
Never, ever use a perfection loop on the tippet side however. Not strong enough, you'll pop it every time
Both the surgeon's loop and the non-slip mono loop work much better.
I never found "hinging" to be a problem if you only step down one or two tippet sizes
