Yes, I found out last night doing a "test run" of these little suckers that they're quite strong if you pull on them, however just the slightest bit of pressure from behind, such as that likely to happen if/when handling the loop connector during casting or fighting a fish, causes the thing to slip right off the line! I think I'm going the route of the nail knot...
Thanks!
