Not sure what this leader knot is called but this is the one I use...
Text Line Font Parallel

With the one in ur video, does having two bits of line in-between the mainline and shockleader not cause u any trouble?

here is a little clip on tying the Spider hitch. What knots do you us to tie your mainline to leader?
Second part of that linking spider hitch loop to leader looks like a yucatan knot. Easier to tie by wrapping the looped mainline around a straight leader then take the tag end of leader through the mainline loop:

I use a bimini twist instead of spider hitch and the yucatan or slim beauty. The loop and doubled mainline makes for a much stronger knot.

no mate, not even close the bimini twist is probably one of the best used at the right time, it is a shockleader knot for when strength is of the ut most important, i dont know what the one you use is called, maybe just shockleader knot?

I use the improved Albright or the one that Lawrecne mentioned, which I just call a standard shockleader knot.

I used a shock-leader for the first time ever yesterday, is there any way to stop the knot catching on the rings? I found this quite annoying and it seemed like it was limiting my casts.

I used the knot in the picture I posted at the top for the first time last month, never used a shockleader before and I found it really easy to tie and my last session was really really weedy but I didn't have one strand of weed caught on my knot it also didn't catch on my rings. These guys will probably tell you to try a different one but its worth a go trying the one I use.
