I've tried surgical, blood, small bimini's looped together---all without much success. It seems the braid still cuts through the mono on a hard pull, I've doubled the lines, I think I have tried everything, I want a windon leader, I'm trying that new method I read about in saltwater sportsman last month, hope it works------------------has anybody had any real success with any particular knot??

Albright knot, is the knot that works for me. Last resort, use a tiny spro swivel in the rating of your choice. Capt Burke, from the "Mad Gaffer" uses his own Knot, and that is super strong and never brakes. I still have not figured out how to tie Cpt. Burkes knot by myself.... yet:)

without question, a double uni should do the job

I use double uni all the time. However, PowerPro' direction says to use the double uni with like dia. lines and the Albright with different dia. lines.

Place a piece of 80 dacron on your braid before you tie a loop to act as a cushion against the mono. I use hollow core braid extensively for wind-ons with 60# to 250# mono. It works excellently

Albright for me also...never a problem and it easier (for me anyway) to tie than the uni to uni...

uni to uni never fails.
Albright is superior but I can't tie it perfect twice. you can tie a uni to uni in the dark. very helpful
