Agreed. I tie the Palomar on almost everything, non-line-to-line also. I do know how to tie several other knots, but still haven't found a knot that is as simple, yet as strong as the Palomar..
Watching the Knot Wars, or any knot testing for that matter... I'd really like to know how they rate a knot failure. I mean, if the knot doesn't hold tight, slips or breaks at the point of the knot.. that to me is a knot failure. Right?!
