I too snell the front hook just so it lays a little more natural. Not saying the figure 8 method is wrong , it's just a personal preference. Good informative video!

Thanks for all the input guys. I am by no means an expert. Just sharing what I have had success with for any new people out there wanting to give it a shot. We, as fisherman, can always learn something new. I may just try the snelling of the front hook as it seems popular. Run it side by side with a straight figure eight setup and let the fish decide for me. Thanks, Will

I made a few the other night and just did haywire twists with 58lb tooth proof single strand wire. Maybe I need to change them?

Jason,
Plenty of people use single strand. It is all just personal preference. Haywire twist is the go to for single strand as far as I know...

I've used single strand before. I feel like they don't last as long as 7 strand.

I use single strand. It doesn't last as long, but it's very stealthy and can be rigged without any tools, including cutters. It's also dirt cheap
