Juro's Loop Recipe

Finally got around to taking some images of the loops I developed over 15 yrs ago (wow time flies), still using them today. For my tastes I haven't seen anything better but it's kind of a subjective thing and I'm happy to go with the flow when I do.

Advantages are energy transfer without hinging, compactness, strength, durability and a very high ease of un-looping even after very high tension. There is some light clicking through the guides but because the working length is so short and the profile uniform the binding we used to see with long hard sleeves is not there.

For other applications like leader loops I use other methods, this is specifically for joining things in the middle of the belly like sinktips or adaptable lines (e.g. spey lines).

Match the braid according to the line diameter - 20#, 30#, 50# etc. It also comes in a few colors - white, flouro green, orange, etc.

The aquaseal can be thinned with cotol (outside) to provide a very slim profile with incredible strength. I still have several of the original loops I made 15 yrs ago and have literally cut lines in half on sharp rocks before the loops gave way.

(in the macro shot I had not yet coated the nail knot with aquaseal)
