Phil, depends on whether it is fluoro or copolymer. Generally, the latter has better knot strength. In terms of which is best, the ideal is to use the same brand for the complete leader. If you use copolymer for the main leader and fluoro for the tippet, go loop-to-loop. If you need info on specific knot strength, I can give you that info from the knot guru, the late Bill Nash.
