Thinking about using the double uni knot to connect my leader to my braid and using the double clinch not for my tactical clips

I use a barrel swivel as well. Improved clinch knots on swivel and clips. Never had one come undone on me, and I can pretty much tie them with my eyes closed.

Braid to swivel with a Palomar and my mono leader gets connected to clip with clinch knot. Never had a problem. Sometimes I use no swivel and I’ll use an Alberto knot to attach my braid to leader but 95% of the time it’s a swivel

Ill use the FG knot. It gives you the ability to use a longer leader and no concern about the knot running through the eyes. It’s strong too.

I use an Albright knot braid to leader.

 

Used to use a double uni but had a few failures then switched. I know the failures were my fault but found the Albright easier at night.

Unless you’re using a lure that gyrates or spins, there’s absolutely no need for a swivel, and even then I take a pass. There’s nothing wrong with connecting braid to leader with the uni/uni, but you may find a slim profile knot like the Alberto, Albright, or even triple surgeon’s loop reels into and casts out of the guides with greater ease, enabling you to tie a very long leader, which provides several advantages over a short one. A uni knot is also a great choice for connecting the clip. It’s a quick tie and seats better than a clinch knot when using heavy leader. Good luck.

Is the VS knot better then the ZBass knot :hooked:

Not in this situation.

VS knot in combination with BS is a great on fluorocarbon following mono.

Here we have mono following braid.

ZBass knot all the way with double 6oz sinker after tactical frustration.

Combine this with fluegosimmmens braid you got a winning combination.
