You could use a blood knot .

or , if guides on your rod are large enough you can use a size swivel that will pass thru , loop end at both sides {no snap } to attach lines together .

I’ve used a double uni-knot for a while with good success. Recently changed everything to micro swivels though. Makes replacing leader material much easier and the swivel may help reduce some line twist.

Willis for regular lead, uni-uni or Albright for super lead. Willis knot looks intimidating but is really simple once you get the hang of it. No matter what knot, make sure you remove the lead from the section you're trying, then you basically treat it like dacron line.

Regular fisherman's knot for me , this is my personal decision I feel it will feed thru the guides better .

Big Blue 150 is right about line twist and I will even use 2 spaced 10 to 12 feet apart if running a bait that may spin the line easier

I would strip back 6" of lead and send the leader up the sheath then tie a single overhand knot. On the main line side, it was uni-uni.

I use the small work swivels and improved clinch knots. On the copper I shrink wrap the twist knot with 3/32nd tubing.
