Boy, the folks at Angling Knots are quick! On Monday we posted a video about a new-ish knot for attaching sections of monifilament with different diameters, and now there’s an animation for the knot. The demonstration was pretty clear, but I realize that some folks learn easier from these kinds of animated videos, so I figured I’d throw it up here.
Several commenters on Monday’s post noted that this knot is quite similar to the figure-eight knot that we used in my rock-climbing days, which was my first impression, as well. Has anyone tried this knot on the water yet? Some feedback would be great.

Going to try this knot out next time on the water, hopefully very soon.
I wish they would do one on the “perfection slip knot” that you posted this week. It doesn’t work. Perfection loops don’t slip. I can’t tell from the video what he is doing differently.
Not sure what knot you’re referring to here, Harold.
Looks like a single-wrap Seaguar knot.
Does anyone know what the breaking strength of this knot is?
Infinity tipit knot – looks too easy – wondering if it works with fluorocarbon and braid ?
As I noted above, it is very sim. to the Seaguar knot- a knot developed to connect a fluoro tippet to a mono leader. Just add a couple more twists.
Thinking of using it instead of the triple surgons for a nymph dropper set up.My reservation is it looks like the potential dropper leader is pointed downward instead of at a 90 degree angle.anyone have any thoughts
This is like the Orvis Tippet knot with one less turn around the loop.
so, does it prove effective or not??
