How do you Guys attach the Spider Wire to the Mono? Would a small swivel be OK or better with a Knot?

Thanks

Try a reverse Albright knot I find it super strong and not to hard to tie, plenty of vids on YouTube and or look up the Knotwars App I'm sure there's a little animation and step by step guide how to tie it. Plus plenty other knots too. Great little app


Just checked it on Knot wars its called a modified Albright if you go looking

Thanks TomCat. Will look that up and give it a go. What length of mono would you use at lure end?

I normally use about 24" to 30" inches, I try to keep the knot outside the tip ring if I can.

As you suggested you could use a swivel, some guys use a small ring to join the braid to leader but the Albright has yet to let me down.
