Hi axle27,

The Palomar Knot is a great knot and is used a lot by Bass fishers. I use it a lot with size 1 to 7 hook. I don't think it would be a good choice for tiny nymphs or dry flies. Due to the double line through the hook eye it might get a little bulky. Maybe not with a 7X tippet. I have never tried it.
