    I normally just tie like 3-4 overhand knots, I didnt even know there was a cirtain knot you were sopposed to use.

    This is a form of the arbor Knot. When using the super braids it helps to put a layer of electrical tape on the spool first. Go around the spool then tie a normal overhand knot around around the main line this will slip down tight to the spool clip the tag end about 1/2 inch. Start reeling the line on.

    I also use the easy three turn Uni.. its fast and easy and holds well..

    The Arbor knot is "intended" for this application so they say, but I've have more trouble with them slipping than any other knot I've tryed.

    The clinch will work very well too but, go easy on the number of turns because you dont need to many, and with large diameter line it will create a noticable lump in the spool. Three, to four turns will suffice and keep the not size smaller as opposed to the recomended six turns.

    I fish braids so I use a layer of electrical tape first then the good dependable UNI Knot.I pull the knot to the top of the spool (I use Spinning reels) then hand wind the first layer of line on so it lays nice and flat and doesn't make a bulge over the knot.

    I use an arbor knot and have never had any trouble.
