My line to leader connection doesn't look quite like anyone elses. It's about 1/4" long, almost seamless, and it doesn't catch in the guides. I use a short piece of an old Orvis braided leader. They were braided with fine mono. I just insert the line and the leader and apply Krazy Glue. Never had one fail in 25 years, and there is no affect on the casting (not a hinge point).

How do you change leaders? I'm guessing you use the same butt section and knot on the rest?
I'm not the best of casters, but I have noticed hinging with loops and try to avoid them Nail knot to the line works fine, but it offsets the leader and can get caught in the guides. Your method would probably overcome those issues.

Mike,

I put a fairly long butt section and if I change leaders I just cut the butt and tie on a new leader. Here's another tip: I tie a very compact knot between the leader and butt section. Then I cut the protruding material as close as possible so there is almost nothing to hang up in the guides or catch debris. Then I put a small dab of Krazy Glue on the knot. It will never come apart - the Krazy Glue "melts" the monofilament together.

P.S., I'll be around on Saturday if you want to measure the bamboo rod.
