6/0 thread should work fine as long as your bobbin isn't nicked up. A drop of zap a gap seems to seal it up nicely (and quickly). I don't think one method is stonger than the other as long as the tension is there when you spin the bobbin or tie your nail knots. If you want something super-strong you shoudl probably be looking into a double-catch whipped loop of 50# braided mono anyway...
