Default Knot test? Double Uni vs Blood knot

I have always used the Double Uni to attach my Flouro leaders to my Braid...Lately however I have been tying the blood knot and it seems to be stronger...I dont have a way to test to make sure but if I just pull them with my hands until failure it seems like the Blood knot takes more until it fails...

I was just wondering if anyone else has info as to a test between the two..

Thanks Nickoalous... I just googled the seaguar knot and tried it... It seems strong but not sure I like the fact of running the length of leader through the twisted loop...It may be a pain with the 15' of leader I use...I'll definately try it though..

The Seaguar knot is incredible! I've not yet had it slip on me...ocean or fresh. The line will always break away from the knot and its good. I've not had any problems with it going through the guides either.

The uni to uni beat the rest of the field in the videos call Knot wars. You can Google it. I wonder if the Seagar knot works with braid. Sure looks simple.
