FG. Come by and I'll show you. Been using it over a year. Knot has yet to fail if tied correctly.

FG for micro guides

All good options above (crazy improved Alberto here)

Been using a dab of loctite super gel over the line to line knot and pressing it in this year
This lays the tag ends down nicely so they don't grab on the guides. Also helps prevent any slipping. Adds about 20 seconds to the knot tying, but finding that its worth it

I use the Alberto it's quick and fairly simple kinda hard to screw up and it works great

Blood knot. Comes out a bit thinner and longer so it goes through the guides a little better. I've never busted a leader off on it

Uni-to-Uni knot here, six wraps on a side. Typically joining 30# or 50# Power Pro to a 12# 100% Trilene flouro leader. The smallest guides I have are on Falcon Lowriders, I don't have any micro-guide rods.

Dodd knot. "Dodd knot video" on YouTube with Barry Dodd is the only one that shows how to tie it correctly. Never had it fail and you can tie it easily on the boat. Ever tried to tie an FG knot while your fishing? Good luck!

I do the double uni as well. Very easy. I'm gonna try the loftier with a nice close trim of the tag ends, esp on my Duckett rods with micro guides.
