What's the best knot to connect mono to braid?

The recommended knot for connecting mono to braid is the double-uni knot. This knot is commonly used by anglers to join two lines together, especially when the diameters of the lines are different.

To tie the double-uni knot, you'll want to make sure that the knot on either end is about the same size. If the lines have different diameters, you can adjust the number of wraps accordingly. For example, if you're using 50-pound braid and 20-pound mono, you might do six wraps of the braid and three wraps of the mono.

Here's how to tie the double-uni knot:

  1. Lay out your mono and braid parallel to each other.
  2. Make a loop with the braid and lay the mono behind it.
  3. Wrap the braid around the mono and through the loop six times.
  4. Slowly pull on the braid to tighten the wraps.
  5. Repeat the process with the mono, making a loop and wrapping it around the braid three times.
  6. Pull on both the braid and mono to tighten the knot.
  7. Trim the tag ends of the lines.

The double-uni knot creates a strong connection between the mono and braid, allowing for smooth casting and effective fishing. It's important to ensure that the knot is tightened properly to maximize its strength.

3 Fishing Knots Everyone Should Know! by TacticalBassin pound braid and their diameter is quite different in the case that this was a mono or a fluoro you might be talking about a 20 or a 30 or a 40 pound braid trying to tie to a six or an eight or a ten pound fluorocarbon in the event that it's not working what you do is you continue with the nine loops on the braided side six seven eight and nine pull myself a little more line here across that center point but then on my leader material side fluoro or mono normally of course here we're still using braid I go less loops but the less loops you do the weaker that line will potentially become for that connection will become so I'll only go maybe six or seven one two three four five six put it through there go ahead and cinch it up of course you would wet that not there's a good clean not nine loops on one side six on the other so I will always start with nine and nine because that's my strongest knot I trust it the most but as you go to lighter lines and you begin to have problems getting them to cinch down correctly you can go to nine and eight nine and seven nine and six if I get there and it still won't tie I drop my main line my braid side down to seven and I go seven and seven seven and six

What's The Best Fishing Knot? | Bass Fishing by Bass Fishing Tips & Techniques by BassResource One of the things I can tell you is on those slips is you've got to do a lot of wraps. So, a minimum, to me, I think is about six. Six wraps. And if you use two pounds, or three pounds for trout, which I do sometimes, I use eight wraps. Because it's literally almost a hundred percent, up in the high 90's, 98%, 99% knot strength. The same thing with braid. Braided line, I use anywhere from ten to fourteen wraps. The lighter I go, the more wraps I do. The fluorocarbon, now, you'll notice, I always fish on the heavier lines. They'll be a little big, but it's never affected the way they hit it, and it's so strong that that's all I use. I do connect the fluorocarbon to the braid with the same knot. I just do two of them, so. I can show you some of that stuff later. Hi, I'm Aaron Martins here with Limit Out Marine in Washington. I'm going to show my knot that I use. It's an old saltwater knot. It's called a uni. You can call them Razo knot. Razo takes a little bit of credit for it, but I think a lot of salt water guys always double their knots. Basically it's a uni knot doubled, with the line doubled. It makes you able to do it on the drop shot rig. If you do it singly, you've got a long tie again, but if you double it, you have a short loop.
