Kitefisher- Ok, IMHO your guides is the problem, not your knots so much, having seen and felt the difference k-series low rider guides make, I would strongly recommend getting some.

Although the first few guides has "smaller" ID than what you are using now, they just work, and the add distance to your cast.

When Mike Pautz built a new rod for his wife, I suggested it to him, he gave me a funny look, but agreed, one cast and now even his grinder rods are built this way.

We tie 50lbs- 130lbs-anything from .70-1mm nylon and there is no noise or knots hitting guides,
