Easy to do with rod in holder on the yak, trick I found is not to much tension on the braid while its in your teeth. Glides through guides easy as.
That video makes it look so much easier, i saw one video on the FG not and it looks quite complicated to me but that video changes things, I think I'll be changing my main to leader knots on my days off now after watching that video.

And I'm also curious as to what FG stands for :)

+1 for This^^^

I found if the end of the braid is getting even a little bit worn or sun-damaged, it won't bite into the mono. When it does bite in properly, you see a colour change. Hard to explain but obvious when it happens.

About 1.5m for me, braid is on my finger when casting, knot back to back uni for braid to leader, tried a few others and never seen any improvement, in saying that I wasnt having issues with the connection so couldn't see why the need to change TBH A :^)
