Loop knot for both, never had a problem, using 6lb flouro. Only breakoffs I get is when I get hung. Are you using a stiff rod and yanking their lips off?

Make sure your line isn't frail. It may be time to respool I've been using loop knots for years and only have had that problem when my line gets old and weak. If you can break it with your hands it is time to replace it.

Do you have a link to how you tie these knots, or can you explain them?
Thanks

I experienced the same breakage issue until I started using Seguar Red Label line.

Gamblinman, I got some of that Red Label to tie on my PowerPro braid. It is some tough stuff, for sure.
