Default Re: Welded Perfection Loop Breaking?

As the welded loop is roughly 85% the strength of the standing line, you can repair yours, or on a new line out of the box, improve its strength to full + by supplementing the thermal-chemical bond with a mechanical reinforcement. Simply tie a multi-turn (12 to 15) nail knot with mono or better yet fluoro .012 to .015 over the doubled section of line forming the loop. No need to cut it off and whip a new one when the line is smoothly doubled to begin with. (This is assuming you WANT a loop on the end of your line...I do on the rear end only.)
