Clinch Knot Vs. Modified Clinch Knot Vs. Trilene Knot (Strength Contest)
We have a new winner!
I did a new strength contest to find the ultimate knot for both mono and fluoro going to a hook or a swivel.
The last time we did this experiment, we tested the uni knot and the clinch knot.
But this time we’re testing the clinch knot, the modified clinch knot, and the trilene knot against each other.
See who the new winner is in this experiment below!

You asked for a test between these knots and it turns out there is a new winner in the battle!
Spoiler alert, the clinch knot did not win.
I also tested the difference between using saliva and not using saliva when cinching down the knots.
Here are the lines used for the contest:
And here are the full results of the experiment:
As you can see, the trilene knot won hands down!

The clinch knot, the modified clinch knot, and the trilene knot are very similar.
But the small differences make a huge impact on the strength!
So if you’re tying mono or fluoro to a hook or swivel, I recommend using a trilene knot.
Do you use the trilene knot?
