There's various "carrot" type knots that'll do a good job when the leader knot is on the reel. It's more about knot size , shape and tag end position. There's very little stress on this type of leader knot set up so carrot knot's are ideal, superb strength and fly through the guides.
Leader/ hooklink knot's that don't go through the guides are also many but always try to work the knot with the thinnest material. Back to back uni, Albright, Yucatan FG etc

FG knot all the way, I use these lure fishing casting and retrieving heavy lures and they will never let you down.

my experience is the mahin knot is good for nylon to nylon or braid to braid but on nylon to braid it can slip

Look up the FG knot . Done well it canít be beaten for braid to nylon/fluoro.

I won't say that the Albright is a bad knot, in fact I love it for rigs, leader knots, not so much. I do think that the Mahin is the best knot for leaders due to the front leading taper. Cut my crack offs - was using the double uni - to zero with the Mahin.

When really hitting the rod as hard as you can, I need a knot that isn't going to rip off an eye or blow up a rod.

Anyone use the Mahin to tie braided leaders to nylon? Is it doable?

Have become a fan of the knot due to it being nice and small 😁
