      I use a double overhand loop, works fine for me.
      If anyone needs to know about setting up the elastics or tying the loops in their rigs, check out my short film here: YouTube - Tying a Crow's Foot Elastic Connector

        make sure you double over hand them cause they are particle to slip then you cant get the rig off the elastic without biting the line off

          I always use a double figure of 8 and then the top one that you pull to undo the rig, I cut just to make sure it doesn't go over the pole top! Never had one of those slip.

            if you use kryston snakeskin 25lb you can just use your loop tyer.
            the snakeskin has a coating on it so if you wiggle the single loop it comes off no problem.
            i've been doing this for around 6 months now and it works great.
            if it's good enough for alan scotthorne it's more than good enough for me!
