Recommended Posts

No lead removed on the Alberto knot I see.

Yes, I should have mentioned that in the video the author is using regular braid. For our needs, The LC sheath with the lead removed handles the same way as regular braid when tying the knot. Sorry for the omission. I use 12lb 832 LC exclusively for trolling the reservoirs where I live and use the Alberto knot to tie in 10lb fluoro leader. Have never had the knot fail! Give it a try!

By the way, I use the same knot when I make up my various lengths of leadcore set ups and join Stealthcore segments to braid backer again, after removing 4-6” of lead from the sheath!

The trick to tying the "remove the lead lead core knot" is you got use a sharp  razor blade to cut your leadcore and your floro or mono.

If you don't use a razor blade the mono or floro will probably have a bur on it that you won't be able to see with naked eye. That will prevent you from pushing the line into the sheath of the leadcore. If you don't use a razor blade to cut the leadcore you will probably have alot of fraying at leadcore cut. You won't be able to see hole to push the line in.Anyhow this is a knot that works great. Its never failed me in 25 years. Do a couple practice knots be for making your final connection.

Uni to Uni, and always remove the lead when tying knots in LC. Some think it's important to wet the sheath before clinching, others don't. 

 

LC presentations are a must in our crystal clear waters on Lake Michigan.
