pcray.......awhile back you wrote that thhe knot you have trouble with is the line leader connection. Have you ever tried the braided connections with the shrink tube? Also i just bought a Cortland 444sl DT 4wt that has a loop built into , oddly , one end of the line , that goes right through also. And a nail knot covered with a little flex material too. This is a cool subject.

I haven't tried the braided connections with the shrink tube. I never liked loops much. I use a nail knot.

But I do use the flex material (UV Knot Sense). It's no panacea, but it helps.

Try tying a nail knot with maybe 6" of mono with a surgeons loop on the end , triple , right g? and then fasten your leaders surgeons loop to surgeons loop. Easy to change leaders. To handle different conditions.
