RE:Epoxy Butt Splice

You won't "knock" it when you try it

Way stronger than a nail knot. It's really not epoxy, it's zap-a-gap style epoxy... thin, permeating - to bond by osmosis into the braids of the core and the mono butt.

Saltwater is way less demanding than a volcanic rock toothed river gorge with sinktip lines and this joint is way beyond the challenge, you have to cut it off to change the butt.
