    How are u all rigging this. I want a large loop on one end to facilitate quick head changes and small loop on the other end. Also I want out to go through the guides well at the head h
    Junction.

    Albright to backing and double surgeon's loop on head end. Usually Aquaseal the tag/doub. surg. knot end to help ease catching on tip top and guides.

    Good luck.

    Two large surgeons loops and a bimmini for the backing.

    Triple surgeons. A bit more bulky, but lays straight. Do loops that way front and back and do a bimini loop to loop on the backing.

    head to shooting line... loop your miracle braid back over on itself, use some GSP or 210 denier tying thread and go over and over and over making a tapered junction. whip finish. zap a gap. bimini on the backing end
