I use a surgeon's knot, quick and easy to tie consistently. I had my son do a science project on various fishing knots to see how what they failed at. It's enlightening to see how different knots can reduce braids strength by 1/2. Didn't test the albright, but with the surgeon breaking at 90% of line strength I've seen no reason to change.

I use the Red Phillips knot for any mono/flouro to braid. Smallest, strongest, simplest to tie that I have seen. Try it, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

One of the other reasons I like it, in addition to what I already mentioned is no need for super glue. I've pretty much tried them all, and all except this one will start to unravel if they are reeled through the guides to many times except the Red Phillips knot.

And no more of those super glue spots on my jeans, LOL.

I use a modified surgeons knot but am going to try the phillips knot Wink_man posted, it looks easy to tie. If I'm using two lines of similar dia. I use a blood knot because it casts through the guides very well.

I have never seen that knot before wink_man, thanks for that!

Although I invented and published the "Dog Knot" for connecting braid to mono, I don't even use my own knot anymore after learning this one......

Yucatan is my favorite. For light work (fresh/inshore) I'll do a spider hitch for the loop. Heavy stuff gets a Bimini twist.

Uni to Uni (double uni) for line to line. You can tie it in the dark or wind pretty well.

forpest, if you're using Seaguar for leader material, good choice. I've gone down to the 22 lb for inshore light spin tackle and it is tough.

Ive been using the double uni knot for several years, but am going to give the Red Phillips a try. That looks easier.

I have a question for you guys regarding your overall opinion of mono vs braid from an overall satisfaction standpoint.
First off im old and somewhat set on the things that have worked for me. I never realized i had any line problem using
mono untill people kept telling me i did. Over the last few years i switched some of my conventional reels and some spinners
over to braid. On light spinners i always just go line to leader
with no double with a uni uni. On heavier line spinners and
my conventional bottom/trolling outfits which are never spooled
over 30# i use a 6 wrap spider hitch double and a yukitan or
similar to attach my leader. Ive never had a failure with this
with the type fish i target.
My problem now with braid is knots. Seems the way ive been doing things wont work with this stuff. The ammount of wraps
around the thumb on the spider hitch is impossible for me.
Ive tied the Red Phillips knot with no effort and of coarse i can tie uni's. But that leaves out the double line. Im guessing
nobody's using a double with braid? If not id like to be clued
in on the best way to tie one without using a bimini or some
other more difficult knot.
Im tempted to just trash the braid and go back to my comfort level, mono.
