Hey all. I'm gonna be re-spooling a couple of rods and I was wondering what the gold standard is for shock leader too mainline knot is these days? I think last time I used a triple surgeon s knot. This is gonna be for mono not braid. Thanks!

Somebody on here put me on to a bimini to Slim Beauty several years ago; it hasnt failed me and I have been using it for at least 5 years.

I've been using the no-name for line splices for years now. I didn't know what the knot was called, and now that I know I'm not surprised.

Great knot, no failures that I can remember.

I'll use a bimini twist for heavy applications, but usually it's just a spider hitch. For really light applications (say attaching fluoro leader to braid for crappie), I'll get lazy and just double the light line and cinch the knot down tight.
