The 3 nail knots you show on those videos will work from 20lbs to 130lbs I assume.....since that part is not where the connection strength comes from (Chinese finger trap is).

On the heavier tests, say 80# and up, put a nail on the leader to act as the "nub" on the leader, with braid covering it and extending over that point by 1.5-2" and then do your nails between the nub with braid now covering and your transition point.


Great Stuff!

I tried that a few times but mostly I find that after I did the nail knot on the Flouro, is hard for the ToroTamer to go back “over it”. Maybe my 30lbs Power Pro for the knot is too thick? Anyways, putting my 30lbs ToroTamer with 30lbs Sunline “ Big Grin to Action” this weekend, wish me luck.

Ok update on ToroTamer 30lbs with sunline 30&20lbs. 30lbs Sunline took 3ft insert to hold (2nail knots and glue) and 20lbs Sunline took 4.5ft insert to hold(2nail knots and glue). Will try 16 lbs next week. I am ok with 16 lbs inserting as much as 9ft as Long as it holds. Wish me luck
