agree Budgie, as will a loop in the end of the braid and just putting the mono on with a grinner. (twice thru or the mono will get cut)

Why cushion braid with a mono leader?
I can understand a fluoro leader in very clear water, but otherwise you are defeating the object of the no stretch braid by putting stretchy mono in the equation. Seems piontless.

I use the braid all the way through for my carp,Cat and Pike fishing but do prefer a io'length of mono for feeder fishing.Not so sure you need it for the "cushioning" effect but I do prefer to tie my feeder rigs in mono.Dont think a 10' length is going to put much stretch in to the system but see your point Rik.

I have been using braid for years for feeder fishing and for most of that time it has been Berkley Fireline in the 6lb breaking strain. But last summer I switched to a braid marketed by Sensas, I tried it out for the rep over here and was very impressed with it. It sinks very well, the colour is abit off putting as it is a bright green colour but it does darken up well. One thing that shocked me was that it has much the same diameter as the Fireline but breaks at near 20lb, so I make sure to use at least 25ft of 4lb maxima, this gives me the stretch I need.
It does not come cheap either, but if you can get some gop for it.
There is a Jan Van Schendal braid as well that is top class as well, some of my mates use it and find it to be good as well.

Hmmm to put a loop in braid is a problem in itself so I stand by the waterknot. The leader has minimal stretch effect when you cast our 30'+ of line so I would include it and part of the reason of adding one is to enable you to put on your terminal tackle. If you are fishing anything but a big stillwater stick to mono. Oh and if you want to suggest something else just for the sake of it try and put it into practice first and test it works... people come here for advice so try and provide it.

"people come here for advice"

and so other people provide it.

Because it's different advice to yours Carl, does that mean that people have never tested it?
Is yours the only method that works?

"to put a loop in braid is a problem in itself"
mmmmmmmm, that's something that you've obviously never tested then.
Maybe you should start a thread asking the best way that others, that have practiced it, get over this problem that you have.
