    Just finished a hybrid string job and trimmed the main tie off knot way to close. I believe the double knot I tie is a clinch knot. Is it likely to fail? My own o3 Black or I would have to re-string for piece of mind....

    Thanks/Don

    It should be OK. I try to leave at least 1/8th of an inch or more. A double hitch should be enough. I've come across some tie offs with just one hitch.

    Put a tiny drop of super glue on the knot. Carefully though 'cause it will wick up the string if you put too much. Use a toothpick or something.

    The first hitch is enough to hold the knot even if the tail on the second hitch is cut too short.

    Good advise above.
    Also if you do not have super glue, you can also use clear nail polish to help hold the knot together, but like said the 1st hitch will hold and probably will hold until the string breaks.
