shock tippets

What set ups do you folkes use for bite guards?
Barracuda? Tarpon? Blue fish? Does any one use a shock for Stripers?
What knots? What kind of material? How long?
For tarpon: I put perfection loops on both ends of a 5' lenth of 50# maxima. I tie a 24" class tippet, 20# with bimini loops on both ends. One end of the class tippet is looped to the butt with a triple surgeons knot(the loops are big enough to pass a fly). The other end of the tippet is connected to 12" of 80# flourocarbon with a huffinagle.
What are the best knots for attaching the bite guard?
