Ben

You can try the blood knot.

https://stripers247.com/Blood%20Knot.htm

Or use this one its a shock leader knot. Its the easieast and fastest. and it works for braid to braid.

Step 1: Tie an overhand (Granny) knot in the heavy trace material and pass your lighter main line through.

Step 2: Pull the overhand knot in the heavy line tightly closed. Take four or five turns around the heavy line with the light.
Step 3: Pass the light line back through the first loop as shown. Lubricate with saliva and pull tight. Trim end to about 2mm.
Use a length of heavier nylon at the working end of your main line. The shock leader should be about 2 to 2 and half times the length of your rod. The weight of shock leader line should generally be two or three times the breaking strain of your main line.
We use what is called a "tapered" shock leader which is approximately 20 lb at one end (which attaches to the main line) and about 40 to 70 lb at the sinker end. This allows for smoother travel through the guides on your rod.

Of course Im sure other guys have better knots that they use. Especially when doing it all the time. I just use the shock leader because to me I can tie it in the dark if need be. I dont usually tie braid to braid, but I do tie braid to mono and mono to mono. I dont see why it wouldnt work for dacron to braid as well. :D

why dont you just put 150 yards of backing on? instead of braid...it gives you less slipping.

Yea I do Zim but the one I been using for shock leaders is the easiest, I can tie it with my eyes closed. Just like a fishermens knot. 8) I Cant see. Forget trying to thread a needle. same thing with a hook eye almost. Im fallin apart.
