    For backing to running line, use an Albright knot.

    For a loop on the running line, multiple nail knots will work. Ive done a loop with three nail knots using 20lb maxima over the doubled back line then done a light coat of UV knot sense over the knots/doubled over line so they go thru the guides easy.
    Heero just pawn in game of life.

    What I don't understand from the likes of Rio is why have no factory fitted loop at the front

    No front loop on Gripshooter - not according to the Rio website which states:

    'A neat 8" welded loop at the front end allows for fast and efficient head changes' ??

    My gripshooter has the 8" loop on the front.

    Default Gripshooter Knot

    Perfection loop for me, with a bit of UV knot sense to smooth out the knot, then take your pick of suitable braid knot to connect backing to loop.
    Never give up on something that you can't go a day without thinking about.
