Going to start using the the palomar Knot for the braid to the swivel then go to the san diego jam for the 40LB shock leader. Just tied the san diego jam with he leader line, quick east strong knot for thicker lines. Also appears it would be  easily tied in strong wind.

Snelled hook, 8-12 inches of 80lb ande mono, 3 or 4 turn san diego jam to swivel.

 

I found the SDJ the easiest knot to get to seat perfectly with heavy mono. It's a neat little knot.

In order: palomar, barrell, clinch, snell. Put a bead on your braid above the palomar to keep the slide from beating up the knot. And try snelling an Owner SSW inline-eye circle with the line exiting from the inside. I know it's not the way these were intended to be tied, but I'd swear it improves hook-ups over a snelled up-eye.

Exactly.  I started using that knot and never went back.
