Default Wire line question.

Does anyone know the best knot to use in attaching a wire line to dacron backing? I need something that will slide through the rod guides easily. Any input would be appreciated!!

I use a small barrel swivel, a haywire for the wire, a palomar for the braid, and a rod with guides big enough for it to pass through...Perhaps not the smoothest but I believe it to be the safest.

bend the wire stick the dacron up through the loop you made....next take the tag end and wrap around wire from back to front like five times stick tag end back through loop and pull

SPRO Heavy swivels are really, really small. I now use them.
