Hope they work out for ya! If you have any questions let me know.

The key is to get the nail knot down over the sweet spot before you tighten to bite into the junction, then a dab of aquaseal makes it permanent.

Pulling on one end of the nail knot tag tightens the other end of the nail knot, and vice-versa.

I use a double-eyed needle (like a buck at the fabric store) for the easiest and most accurate nail knots but you can also use a loop of mono per the under-wraps of a rod guide.

Shaving one side of the coating keeps it symmetric.
