Looks like a well made FG knot.Could use a bobbin as well.Half a dozen opposing half hitches,rizzutto to finish.Leave a long enough tag to loop it over to the other side and then finish that side off with half hitches and rizzutto.Heavey braid.Be easier just to buy from TB for the money.

Lu has a good point the "uni and reversed" technically is a "rizutto". (no FG though)

... and thanks

Just noticed this thread. Here is how we splice a loop for the weight into the hollow core.

id like to see how thats done... are you pulling an extra long tag end into the main line to create the second loop?

Only thing I'd add is that some guys, depending on reel, like a lower profile loop. See below example of usual one I do now. This one is on a buoy rod wind-on leader.





thank you kindly! Tied it up and gave it a shot, worked nicely in the high-speed
