I agree and have a couple or 4 1/2 ft ulralight set ups with 4 lb mono. if i had multiple spools for each reel i'd swap line that way, but i also use the same reels for for bass, carp and catfish, so swapping out the leader is the cheaper alternative.

That being said I tried the Uni to Uni knot on one rod and the alberto on another and will be trying them out tonight probably on the D&R canal as I could not get myself out of bed this morning.

the braid does give you an advantage, you can cast much further and more easily hook fish that hit at the long range of your cast. I used #5 braid for a few years. I switched to #4 fluoro this winter because if you try to fish sub freezing temps with braid that is anything but brand new you just deal with ice all day more so than with fluoro and you still get the no stretch benefit, just lose a bit of casting distance. i always use modified albright or alberto or whatever they call it.

2X Alberto knot. Easy to tie and a much lower profile then uni to uni so it goes through the rod guides better.

Knot I developed for a braid company 20 yrs ago is very simple to tie it covers both fresh n Saltwater applications reverse Albright , salt uses from larger fish just use Bimini loop and tie the same as an loop formed by hand
It’s important to note that u must use minimum ten wraps around braid
with the loop formed in this knot are formed over the braid not the reverse!
I feel the mono in this reverse application holds better , neater in knot formulation and can be coated with knot sense to fill in gaps for smooth slip thru guides , u can clip tight to finish so mono tag does catch guides
Freshwater uni is fine
