Palomar has never failed me in a lot of years tying it. Use it always except when I can't get the doubled line through a small jig eye. Improved clinch not then, but only because I can't use the Palomar.

What is the best knot to use if you are connecting braid to Flouro or Mono? I just bought a spinning rod and reel and would like to learn to drop shot. Thanks

I like the doubled uni (Uni knot, but doubling the line)

The best knot is a good knot that you can tie efficiently and repeatedly.

For joining braided line to mono I use the double uni knot(two uni knots one tied one on braid and other on mono) with the braided line doubled when attaching to larger diameter mono/flouro.

If you can put a swivel in I tie both sides to one end of swivel. If need to change out the leader only have one knot to tie.

Both the Palomar and uni knots work for me on braided line.

.... Trilene Cinch Knot ....
On every line and every bait presentation
The harder the fish pull the tighter the knot gets

Albright, Crazy Alberto or FG knot. All 3 work really well for joining braid to floro/mono.
