Use a uni knot to uni knot connection. Tied right it never fails.

I pretty much stick to four knots. Palomar for mono to snaps / fast links. Alberto, uni to uni or overhand to uni for braid to mono. That's about it and Alberto and Palomar are the go to comb most of the time.

I've tied different brainds and mono for many tasks. I can never beat the uni-to-uni, or the NoName knots.

However, the triple surgeons knot is very strong and works very well if not using a loop (bimini, spider hitch, or other loop).

All the best.

Your culprit might be the daiwa braid, not with the knots.  I had similar experince with Daiwa samurai braid. Try the knot strength on straight braid first. If you can pull or snap the line easily with your hand, it's time to switch.
