nice one..what i find with FG is it is easier to wind the braid with the mainline and the braid is semi taught as opposed to wind the braid around the mainline..also making a ramp of half hitches helps the mono tag not get stuck in guides when retrieving and helps limit the fray of the braid from casting right where the mono ends and the braid likes to whip around the eye as you cast..I dont mind taking the extra time as the knot takes time anyway and tends to last a few sessions so warrants it in my opinion. But whichever knot tied the best in your way tends to be the best knot!
