I put 300 yds of 50# braid, tie it to an inline swivel 150# size and tie the other end of the swivel to the copper using a Haywire twist. I do not connect copper directly to the braid. Next is another inline swivel after spooling on the copper of your desired length and finally a 30' fluoro leader on the terminal end of the second in line swivel.



300 yds braid..........inline swivel......copper........inline swivel........leader


Good luck,
