Knot tieing tips


#1

So I was just wondering about some suggestions I like my knots clean tied when i have been tieing and cutting the excess it’s always unwinding and seems to mess up the string eventually. I know this is a dumb question but was just wondering about some tips or suggestions thanks


#2

no I agree. I usually just tie it around my finger and then double knot it and I just try and get it towards the end as much as possible. I would love other peoples tips or different tying methods.

Just cut it close or use a lighter and that will fuze the frayed threads.


#4

This is the proper way to tie a knot in your string… do this, then just clip/cut off whatever is left hanging.

That looked like you wasted a lot of string dude. XP Like, 2-3 inches.


#6

Well it’s not really wasted if you are getting the string to the length you prefer, right. :slight_smile:


#7

…because tying it small didn’t really serve the purpose of showing you how to do it clearly.

Not to be a debby downer, but that video wasn’t really clear. XP I do agree with Vegabomb though, I forget people sometimes trim their string. I always play with long string. XD

And I buy my strings pre-tied. Problem solved…


#10

Glad I’m not the only one. I hate tying my own knots and having to trim it, and yes I’ve tried not trimming it but that’s even worse having extra string dangling there.


#11

What about if you want to buy string from companies like ammo who don’t tie their string?


#12

That’s why I buy my string where I do. It comes how I want it.

Thanks for the tips guys
