The Bimini is easy as long as you're not fussed about limbs.
You have two hands, two feet and a mouth - use them all !
[smilie=gt-happyup.gif]

OK, so the Bimini is a bit tricky but if you use a simple whip finish, it's not so bad.
The Yucatan and the Uni knot are simple. Which one are you having difficulty with ?

Yes Ken,

I did come home this evening & checked it out. The second spool (braid) was whiplash pro, 30lb rated & 0.1mm dia.
Never the less it is still a dissappointment for the price.

Yeh, the general concensus seems to be that Berkley either get hings very wrong or very right - and neither of the braids has a very good reputation.

[quote="Ken L"]Tathagata. Look up four posts.
The tricky bit is inserting the loop and getting it to stay in place while you over whip it. personally, I just manually wind five or six turns over it and then pull the tag through.

This is a common knot suggested by Rapala for use with their lures, it enables the lure to swim more naturally.
Why would you use a swivel with a lure anyway ?

been using powerpro for the last 8 years shifting over from fireline. was surprised to read about the fake stuff out there.

braid has amazing feel and feedback - a few casts and one gest a feel of the slacks and the currents, the lay of the rocks at the bottom and sandy sections. Casts great and the strength provides the confidence to hold big fish.

the problem with abrasions are real with fish rubbing you out on the rocks to be dealt with by experience of guiding the fish through the rocky minefield and landing it carefully.

the real problem with abrasion is when tying the knot - there is abrasion when the knot is pulled tight - the line has to be lubricated with spit and also one has to make sure that the knot slips in without abrasion. Without lubrication knotting creates abrasion and the knot weakens.

however if the knot is tied properly, the strength of the line holds true.

but if the knot is dodgy and there has been abrasion, then one will look silly and feel stupid for a couple of days if a fish bangs and the line goes TING.

we change knot everyday, test it by rolling the line over your forearm and pulling it till it starts to cut your arm. Any abrasion on the line, make a new knot.

the new stuff out there is flurocarbon and we wait for the 50lbs fluor to fish the clear water of spring and summer. using a 8lb fluro on a didling tackle.

Braid also moves on with smaller dia lines with more strength - more line cap on the reel, longer casts ... seen some new stuff out there 60lbs line thinner than the older 50lbs powerpro.
