different makes of braid have different make-ups, hence the reason people have some problems with different knots....

saying what works for you, needs to also have the type of braid it is working with, that is the main reason for all the confusing reply's, some having great success with some knots and some not....   
Thanks for everything you did for us Eric. may you rest in peace, You were one of the real legends of NZ recreational fishing

Yes, Eric, good point. 
I have had 2 models of braid (one in a different type from a manufacturer I do often use) where I just could not get the knots to hold leader to line - even when just tightening them up, try whatever I could.
 
However, the knots I mentioned first work on all the braids I currently use, whether fused or true braid.  (Brands: Berkley, Sufix, Stren, and TufLine.)
