When you tie to the back you will never forget to push the button, because the arrow will simply “come un knocked” when you draw back....when I have a complete “pass through” I can quickly flick the loop off the arrow with my thumb and pull the line out of the fish one handed and put the line back on in about 9-12 seconds…idk…that’s just my reasons…I could say I think it shoots a little better but that might just be a placebo effect.

Somebody post a pic of what it looks like when tied to the back and knocked.. CORRECTLY!!!! I just bought a spinner and I'm thinking of do'n just that!!
there is no wrong way to do it...just use 200lb Fast Flight line...tie a loop in da end of your line and stick it n da hole and loop it over da knock...

#1 Faster Reload
#2 Slides Cost Money
#3 Slides are a pain in the ass to retie umpteen times a night
#4 Shock pads break constantly
#5 Stop screws never stay tight
#6 Loose stop screws wreck your arrows
#7 Stop screws come out causing you to lose arrows
#8 Rings bend and go over the stop screws causing you to lose arrows
#9 Rings break all the time causing you to lose arrows
#10 Rings wear a groove in your arrow
#11 Mud on the arrow causes them not to slide to the back and screws up accuracy
#12 Using slides allows you to shoot without pushing a button
#13 Slides will slide to the front of your arrow pulling out line.That can cause all sorts of problems
#14 Slides are gay

It's a macho thing...the feeling of satisfaction that you've cheated death and you still have both eyes in your head! lol
You dont shoot big boy shoots then, If you did you would know ever second does count, You take into effect that 5 minutes it takes to tie back on arrow doing the swoop method,gotta take and pick the line just to get it to where you can get the loop loosened so that you can undue the loops, this is what takes forever and tell me how many extra fish your friends have shot IF they are good..

I have never had a slide break for 4 years and my screws are always tight as long as you use rubber gasket/washer and i loop the knot the same why you do you tie to the back im sure its no difference loop through hole over tip the over knock repeat backwards to take off done in know time. Im not arguing just sporting my opinon
