I tried it with 25lb Rio Max and 20lb Rio Max. Seems to be strong enough, and wouldn't be too difficult to tie in low light or cold weather. You end up with a marginally smaller knot than with a surgeons knot but higher profile than a blood. Surgeons will still be the easiest to tie and is (without having tested the knew knot) the strongest leader to leader knot. (I once had access to a Berkley line testing machine and tested every knot that I knew under all kinds of conditions.)
Imo, it would not replace the surgeons for strength and is not as clean as the blood.

I'm sticking with the surgeons knot for 2 reasons: (a)tradition and (b)simplicity. Regards.....
