Cavjock97 The FG or Sebille or whatever you call it is the smallest diameter and the strongest if tied correctly. Takes practice.

Bingo! Crazy alberto knot when tying PP braid to my 5-8ft Fluorocarbon leaders.

The only other knot I ever use is the trusty Uni-knot when tying to a lure.

Cudkilla I used to find tying the FG knot a pain but the benefits are great when you're needing to do a lot of casting and need a small profile knot. That being said, I invested in a weighted bobbin and learned how to use it. Now I can tie an FG knot in literally less than a couple of minutes. Lot's of Youtube instructional videos. Keep in mind that Flouro is much harder and FG knots don't work so well if they cannot compress and grip the mono. I would FG knot braid to mono shock leader, then a shock leader to a heavy flouro or bite leader with a simple double overhand or blood knot.

I also have been using surgeons with three turns and has been put to the test more than once. Like all knots the tying AND the tightening are critical. Alberto looks easy enough though, will be trying. D

muzzleloader I used to tie the crazy Alberto but found a better knot several months ago.

Try the FG braid to mono knot and you will be amazed.

Faded Hula Monkey I have been using the crazy Alberto or also called improved Albright for several years with great results. I fish Florida once or twice a year and have landed several 34 + snook with no problem. Most of my fishing is lower Laguna Madre and catch large reds with little knot failure. I like it because of ease of tying, strength. And small size especially.Wharever you use the key is to practice a lot at home, keep it by where you sit at home and work on it regularly till your good at it. You don't want to lose a personal best fish they are to hard to come by

It sacrifices knot size just a tad but is in my opinion a much more secure knot.
X2 on the Tony Pena knot. I have caught everything from 5lb bass to 500lb marlin with that connection and never had it fail. I had the FG fail twice, plus it is harder to tie.
