      Very adjustable, very fast, and durable. No glue required…

      That’s cool Steve, I’ve never seen that before. I’ll have to give it a try.

      I have always done a series of over hand knots on the top and bottom of the string 2 layers finished with a square knot and glued. You do have to get a feel for how tight to pull the knots or it will move with every release or knot at all.8)

      You’ll like it! I was skeptical of it’s reliability at first, but it holds up well, is easy to adjust, and doesn’t move.

      Don’t know if it will work with monofilament, but it’s worth a try. I’ve been using Halo (expensive, ug…) serving and its been the best so far…

      What weight mono do you use to serve? 6lb? 10lb? I like the idea of using something cheaper that’s durable. I’ve seen lots of production strings served with mono, and it always lasts. Don’t know why I didn’t think of trying it myself 🙄

      I like the idea of using monofilament, I use constrictor knots above and below the nocking point.

      The label has fallen off the spool of line I used, but I think it’s about 15-20lb test stren.
