Yeah I understand that...
I have never had a FG or bimmini let go.. always pull up every turn in braid as tie it.

What I find lets go is the knot to the hook (if trace doesnt get damaged)  And that knot usually shows abrasion from teeth/fins not failure due to strength if nail knot... even when using 80lb plus trace.

Note that the link goes to web.achive
 It appears some of the list hasnt been updated sice at least 2013  and the link is the page 2017
 With a qualification at the bottom

"Review Needed

Its been a while since this Braid has been tested, The data maybe a little old, I believe it may need a retest and review, If you have a sample send it in. "
