Slim Beauty problems

Hi guys - I'm try to tie a slim beauty (17 lb mono to 20lb Mason Hard Mono) and it keeps breaking on the 17lb mono just by the knot evey time, way before it should.

Is there anything I'm doing fundementally wrong do you think? I was wondering if anyone else had had similar problems.
