uceddiec, I've tried the nail knot, albright, braided loops, and probably a plastic connector in my early fly fishing days. The whipped loop passes nicely threough the guides. Eventually your knot will be in the guides. If you like the nail knot, and many people do, you might coat it in pliobond to smooth it out. I can't do a decent needle knot, which looks great for this connection.
