i'd think about using the albright. it just seems to lock the lines together a little better. it is slightly bulkier, but I hear all kinds of bad slip stories with the mono line and the nail knot. I just put "clear" braided mono loops on my Airflo clear line, which are really white, but i don't think they will show up too much in the water. I will be happy to make you a couple to check out if you want.
