Hi Manic >:D<
I use the wire coated leader knot (in sea fishing knots on this site) :D
Everyone has their own favourite,for eccles(hi mate) It`s the albright knot.
personal preference :D

try tapered shockleader , tbh it souldnt snag , if you use a muilti and have a levelwind then tapered is best , i use 15 lb red ice with powrflex tapered leader which runs from 15lb to 60lb so join the 15lb end of the shockleader to your main line , if without levelwind then normal shockleader will do , if you have a fixed spool it shouldnt matter , its the knot that affects things during the cast , i dont have a levelwind and i think taperd leader is a great idea it makes a small knot that dont catch the rings on the way out on a cast.

only thing id suggest mate is trying to make the knot smaller , if you got heavy main line and then a shockleader that might coz problems , best thing i say is make a new post and put shockeader knot fixed spool as i dont use fixed spool and when i did years ago i never had that problem , does your line fall off the spool when you pull the bail arm over ?

leader knot?

All i ever used to do with the leader knot on a fixed spool reel was stop reeling as the leader knot came onto the spool, and then move it right to the back of the spool then carry on winding........ although in the end i got p***ed off with fixed spool reels and bought myself a couple of pucka multiplers......much easier to cast smoothly! :D

i am thinking of getting the butt of the rod i use cut down by a foot that would give me more clearance and allow more swing

I have had a shorter but section and a proper winch reel seat fitted to my Diawa supercast reel and it is so much more comfortable to use. That unless I sell my K2 then I will seriously consider doing the same thing to that. keith
