Braid to Fluorocarbon on Spinning Rods

It seems like use of braided line with a fluorocarbon leader on spinning rods is the way to go.   I hear about it all the time and it makes sense.  Until now, I have been holding off on trying this way to fish.  I don't know why, but I think I was always leery of having extra knots and potential weak links in my system.  I am going to try it this weekend and see for myself.  

I have a spool of Seaguar's new Kanzen braided line in 20lb test with a 6 pound diameter. I think this will be the perfect line to test it out with.  I am going to experiment with different leader lengths and see what works best for me.  

The knot choice is always debated.  Some prefer to use a uni-to-uni, but I have heard many others who swear by the Reverse Albright knot.  (See video below)

What is your choice for knots on braid to fluoro?  I'd like to hear some input on this.
