I tie my nail knots starting with a 20" length of 60 lb test Rio Powerflex and coat them with aquaseal or more recently Loon knot sense. I put a perfection loop in the leader to give a 4" length. To this I loop in my 10' of Airflo polyleader with 5' tippet. The actual nail knot lasts the life of the line.
