Although generally associated with big game leaders, this is an excellent choice for forming a double line to connect to much larger diameter mono. The Bimini is the only knot that tests stronger than the line itself. The knot also acts as a shock absorber, giving slightly under sudden pressure and lessening the chance of line breaking. A 20-twist Bimini is shown here, but more twists (sometimes up to 60) will add more shock absorption.
