you should never tie braid directly to the spool,always put at least 10 yds or so of mono or dacron line as a cushion under the braid...

albright knot with a lock is the best knot for mono to braid connection,double uni is good for lines of different diameters...

a blood knot or double uni works for lines of the same diameter....

by using a 6' shock leader all worries of the braid wearing out the fishfinder are taken care of.....
