Default Buoy line for daytime swords

Can anyone recommend a good way to attach a buoy to solid braid mainline (not hollow core) for daytime deepdrop for swords? Have a feeling that long line clip wouldn't be so good attached direct, slippage and chafing etc..

Wax loop on braid, connect longline clip to the wax loop not the braid.

Seems like your loops are pretty deep. You only fishing 17-1800?

I use wax loops on the wind on but would they grip the braid?

Yes they do grip the braid no problem, plenty of tight halfhitches will get it done. Personally I use mono inserts with the loops at various depths but have also used wax loops directly on to the braid with no issues. I use 80# braid, never tried the wax loop on 65#.

double up rubber bands and wrap them around the mainline several times then grab with the longline clip. works fine for me
