I'm thinking about switching to a 300-500lbs mono leader that I can wind onto my 60W and then using a shorter bite leader. I've been going with about 6' of 360lb 7 strand Malin and 10' of weed eater line. After looking at prices on big mono, I thought I would get that and use this FG knot to tie 20' of the monon to my mainline on my SSV85000 which is 85# braid and then doing a 3-5' bite leader. This way I could more easily cast the bait and reel up further to land a fish. On my conventional reel, a 6/0W I use 50lb mono. Would this knot work for that? Of course there isn't really as much as a need since I don't really cast that rod.
