Knot Essentials: The Grinner Knot

The Ultimate Braid to Mono/Fluro Knot

Connecting different line types

The Double Grinner knot is ideal for connecting braid with flourocarbon / monofilament type lines together.

100% Strength

Unlike other knots, the Double Grinner does not weaken itself when under strain.

Ideal for distance casters

The combination of braid fishing line attached to fluorocarbon or monofilament leader line is something that is getting more and more popular all of the time. This brings issues with some knots due to the abrasive and non-stretchy characteristics of braid fishing line.
