Just a set off amazon looks like the green ones are cheaper now. I got them on one of the flash sales from amazon. But like the cutter being on the outside.

What would you say is easier to tie quickly under pressure ....the double uni or the alberto?
I love fishing.  You put that line in the water and you don't know what's on the other end.  Your imagination is under there.  ~Robert Altman

I would say both are pretty equal for me now, Started with the Uni to uni but have been using the alberto for the last 6-7 years.

With any knot it is gonna depend on how comfortable the individual is with the knot. If asked to tie a SD Jam knot most guys would probably be able to do it but most are definitely more comfortable with the tried and trued.
