I have not seen anyone using 10 lb mono to spin a loop but I have seen a number of people, including me, using 10 lb mono to make two nail knots to form the loop. The knots are placed about an 1/8" apart and then glued.

I recently had the Bears Den rig a 12 wt outfit for me for small tuna and Scott used two nail knots to form each loop and then coated them with something which I think was called KnotSense ( the stuff you cure with a light). Since Scott knows what he is doing I would have confidence in a loop which was formed using nail knots.
