I'm trying to master this knot. I had very little luck using just my fingers; so I popped for the wooden jig. That made the process a bit easier because of the stability it provided; however, I'm still having some problems. On a 1" steel ball, I used a 5 strand wrap of 550. Despite everything I've tried - including watching the video time and again - I'm not getting it quite right. Almost every time I wind up with a 4 strand wrap on one of the ends. It is easy enough to use forceps to put the end through, but I cannot figure out what I'm doing wrong to begin with. Also, when tightening the loops I find that there is one under the other strands that goes crosswise leaving a screwy texture to the final knot. If anyone can suggest what I might be doing wrong, I'd be much obliged to hear from you. Finally, a question about where the ends of the line should be at the end. Do they come out on the same 'side' of the ball, at opposite sides, or quartered when the knot is properly tied? This description is the best I could do but I hope it will trigger a thought in someone more proficient at his know than I am.
