Default Wahoo: planer and hst line rigging

Rod/reel: 50 or 80 W on bent but. Will use with a planer bridle when meat fishing then want to switch to HST.
Question: Should I just load the reel with 100lb braid with no mono top shot since both the planer and hst shock leader will have mono to provide some stretch?

We have an 80w with about 1/3 spool of 200lb braid to the planer bridle, then 50-75' of mono after it. No issues with the planer or HST.

Do you have the mono just for the stretch or is it part of your leader system?
I'll run about 100 feet of 80lb floro from the bridle to bait but when switching to hst, just cut the bridle and leader off, crimp on a heavy duty bb swivel, add my trolling lead and then 30 ft shock leader to lure.

Just rig your weight so that it will fit in between bridle loops. No need to change anything and just unclip the weight and keep reeling same as planer.

But I'm going to want 30 ft of 300lb shock leader from my weight to the lure when hst. I'll have almost 100ft of leader when planer fishing.

we just clip the planer bait off and crimp a big snap swivel back on which gets attached to weight then shock leader then lure. we leave the bridal empty when high speeding.

As of now, I have 100lb braid tied direct to the windon swivel on the planer bridle, then about 100ft of 100lb mono that will go between the planer and lure.
When switching to hst, I think I'll just cut the braid, tie on a big ball bearing snap swivel, attached to trolling lead, then shock leader, then lure.
Any suggestion on the best knot to tie braid to a snap swivel? I usually just tie an improved clinch knot with maybe a couple extra turns.
