I use power pro and have started using Alberto' Knot to attach mono to braid. Do a search for Alberto's knot. There was a recent thread in the ask Alberto column, with pics.

Alberto's knot is fast and easy with practice. A little glue helps it go through the guides faster if you're using it for a long leader.

Try it a few times, you like it.

Luck

Im confused

I have been using the albright for some time now. Just recently I am getting alot of breakoffs at the knot.

Any Ideas?

Willie,
A double uni does a nice job. Check knot recommendations for the braid you purchased. A fresh knot made each time out can limit problems, unless you are talking about your backing connection.
Good Luck,
Steve

The Alberto knot

works well on braid to monofilament applications.

I tried the Alberto knot for the first time last night to put fresh braid on mono backing on one of my reels. Lo and behold, it worked just fine. Quick and easy. Thanks Happycamper for the diagram.
I use the Palomar knot to tie braid to swivels, snaps etc. Hasn't failed once.

Bucktail,
The barrel swivel is only needed to reduce/stop line twist when using a spinning reel. A double uni is all you need for a conventional, because a conventional reel doesn't develop line twist. Also that swivel has a larger profile that will catch weed.
Good Luck,
Steve

A spoon will twist your line as well. But I usually attach the swivel right to the spoon with a split ring.

Under certain conditions I'll bump up the size of my swivel on my leaders. It makes it eaiser to grab the leader when landing fish.

Use a palomar knot- very quick to tie.
