Loctite on knots

Postby Rodster14 » Wed Aug 30, 2017 10:12 am

Does anyone use Loctite on their knots when joining one type of line to another? If so, does it help?

Oh lordy no. Plenty of knots to choose from that need nothing but spit.
But, if you HAD to use some sort of 'anti-slip ' goop, superglue actually fuses .

Never had the need unless using a palomar knot with a thin diameter slick braid. Just used a different knot instead.
I like TD-Z's

Locktide or superglue could decrease slippage but how they affect strength of lines? Could they partially dissolve lines or somehow
decrease their strength? IMHO it is require some searching and experiments.
