I use slickshooter as my running line and and spent time putting loops on them. to connect to the airflo heads when I first starting outting lines together for my atlantis.

However with my recent ones I have just gone to a surgeons loop in the running line followed with a drop of CA glue. The knot is no problem in the guides and there is no way the 50lb slickshooter is going to fail at that knot.

Works for me and is real easy.
