Here’s a new video that was mentioned in the comments section yesterday, purporting to demonstrate an “obscure” knot. I will admit that I have never seen the very simple tying technique before, but the knot itself looks familiar. Is this different from a doubled figure-eight knot? Here’s the description of the video:
The Infinity Tippet Knot is a welcome alternative to the classic Blood Knot or Surgeon’s Knot. It is used to splice different sections of tippet/leader material together and works equally well with similar and varying tippet diameters. The Infinity Tippet Knot is simple, fast, strong, and reliable – a fantastic on-stream knot that is efficient and effective under the most difficult fishing conditions.
