Maybe its me, maybe it the tippet/leader.

I'm having trouble getting my nail knot (both with straw method and with one of the fast tyers tools) to hold.

I'm using 5x Frog Hair FC tippet tied to a co-polymer tappered leader.

I tie the knot, pull it as tight as I can with the thin tippet material and with light pressure it slides right off of the leader.

I know sometimes you need to use different knots with flouro and just wondering if I need to try a different knot.

The frog hair is expensive at almost 8 bucks for 30m so I dont want to just ditch it if I dont have too.

Thanks
