this knot was designed for flyfishing light tippet and although you may get it to work on other applications was not intended for heavy line or braid.

i never really thought about the slim beauty with braid as i don;t like any fluoro or mono tied to it other than the modified albright. the braid winding in and out of line and being real tight against it imo is asking for trouble as tension may cut through the mono inside and weaken it. i usually change the albright on my line after an evening of decent fish and sometimes after a really good fight. mono or fluoroicarbon should feel and appear fresh [as in not old and brittle] i believe this could be a reason some people perceive some knots as troublesome as it is tied to inferior line. this goes for all knots as key elements to success as we all know are fresh line leader and sharp hooks. anything else is either mechanical or boneheadedness.

I have been using the overhand knot with the improved clinch for braid to mono so far without any problems. Its kind of like a simple modified slim beauty without the 10 wraps in each direction. I use a double overhand on the mono and wrap the improved clinch towards the terminal end of the mono according to the diameter of the braid. Usually 10 - 12 wraps.
No real big fish on it yet but several Gorilla bluefish and a couple of mid to high teen fish.
Zim and I will do a strength test on that knot soon to see if it slips.
Ill use his ugly stick and tie the knot to his car bumper. We'll see which one gives out first.
RT - but Zims point is well taken. The best one likely is the modified albright or the alberto knot as both he and others have said many times. That one is tested true on large striped bass.
Having said that I will point out that the slim beauty is also used for tarpon and snook anglers for braid to mono.

Theres nothing like having confidence in your knots.

then by all means use it with braid. if it is tested true, why not. i was sceptical about it but not anymore. i kinda wondered how you would tighten it after the fig.8 was clinched but i see he waits to lock it at the final moment (or at least it appears that way) i will do it and we can test them both but i wanna strap it to your wader belt and have you mush like a drunken saint bernard after a sea robin.

I think the ugly stick and the knot will win out over the hoopdie.

The slim beauty is a great knot I use it all the time.

Heres a short cut that works well for leader to main line.
