acceptable leader to line knot

Been reading some fishing books where nail knots and needle knots are suggested for connecting leader to line.
Any objections for the braided nylon connectors, for tippets 3x-5x, average size rainbows??
Would anybody recommend over this a homemade connector with a butt section of a regular nylon leader?

My reasons for using braided nylon are: no knots, and, since my leaders donīt last anything, no eating up my fly line every time I tie a nail knot.
any thoughts?
thanks

cheers
