Looks like I picked the right one. I went with the Uni's before I saw the posts.
I will give the blod a try also.
Thanks

not looking to hijack the thread, but would uni uni also be the recommendation for fireline to a flouro leader. I usually fish 8lb fireline with a 10lb leader for visibility/durability reasons. The flouro is much thicker than the fireline. Is uni still the way to go?

I've always used what I think is called a surgeon's knot for the connection. Pretty simple and I've yet to break at the link. but always looking for better ways.

ya it works great for braid to flouro connections, just make less loops with the thicker flouro and more loops with the thinner braid and it will work fine.
