60-70% in superline whose actual strength is more than double the labeled strength is not going to fail you and I rather have it fail at 60-70% than 100% when I'm hung up on the bottom. Hate losing the main line because the line to leader knot is too strong.

I've tried all sort of terminal knots in Gliss trying to find one that is between 50% and 95%(FG) and the palomar, double palomar, berkley braid knot have failed at 50% or below.

The double uni in Fireline Ultra 8 10 lbs fails at around 15 lbs. Actual line strength is 27.8 lbs,, or 2.8 times the labeled strength.
