What Kind of Knot from Braid to Hook

For those that might use braided line for Bass, what type of knot do y'all use going to your hook?

Thanks for your help!

    I use a trilene knot but i'm sure everyone else uses something different.

    Palomar straight to the flipping hook or frog.

    If you ask ten people you might get ten different answers... My advise to you is pick a few knots and then 
    figure out the one that you can do in your sleep.... and stick to that one... i use a simple uni knot and snell
    my hooks... quick and easy, but again use one that You feel good with...

    Improved clinch has always been good for me.

    I have always used a six-turn improved clinch knot.  Fast and easy to tie, doesn't fail.

    I use the San Diego jam knot. But whatever knot you choose make sure you lubricate it with spit before pulling tight!

    I use palomar and regular old cinch (standard and improved, depending on my mood). 
    Never had any of them fail.

    I've used a trilene knot for years.
