Hey I learned the Uni/Uni Knot and I can do that by feel without looking at it much. I use short leaders for casting so the knot stays outside my rod tip and guides. I mess up when trying to use any "new to me" knot.

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the crazy Alberto a modified Albright??

Crazy Alberto is similar to the Albright, but the resulting knot is larger in diameter and doesn't go through smaller guides as well. I tie my leaders about 6' long so the knot goes through all of my guides. This allows me to change lures throughout the day many times without having to re-tie a leader. If I was going for outright strength I would probably switch to the Alberto, but I cannot remember ever losing a fish to a failed leader knot. I cannot remember the last time I lost a red or trout to a broken line. It's been decades for sure.

I've always used Albright, but after watching the video above, I think I'll give the Alberto a few test runs. Seems ridiculously easy, and I like that...

It is stronger and smaller then the uni to uni so why would you not use this knot? It's very easy to learn.

Crazy Alberto for me as well. I am "knot" challenged and this is the only one I can remember easily and it works great!

I've always used the Albright because it has a smaller profile, is strong enough for inshore, and easy to tie while wading in windy conditions.
