I think there are some diehard guys that would say that this is not as strong as a normal albright knot when you tie it with a doubled line with a bimini, but if you can't tie a bimini well (like me), or you need to retie in a crunch, I think this is a nice alternative. Of course, the guys at the tackle shop say that this knot is jsut as strong though. So, is it stronger? I don't know because I can not tie a bimini well enough to do a comparison but from what I have gathered, it is a strong knot and a lot easier to tie than a bimini to albright.
As for exiting the knot, I am not really sure what you are asking but here is a diagram of what you should do....
I guess I would say that you exit the knot in the reverse way you came through the knot. So, if you come up through the bottom, you exit from the top back through the way you went in. I hope that makes sense...Take notice to see that the green and blue line are "under" the loop kind of like a figure 8 knot with a bucnh of twist above the knot...
