Perfection loop lays straighter and seems stronger, takes me the same time.

Sometimes though its better, like making a cast of wet flies quickly.

Personally I like a nail knot. If you get one of those pointy nail knot tools you can tie one really easily in about 30 seconds. To avoid having to clip the end of my fly line I just use the clippers to cut the leader where it wraps around the fly line, then when tying on the new leader, I keep the nail knot just slightly loose and tie it up farther on the fly line, then slip it down just to the end of the line, tighten it up, clip the tag end of the leader and I am good to go. I used to use a surgeon's loop on the end of my fly line, but I got tired of it hanging up in the guides, so I learned to tie a nail knot.
