In science:

The Frog Hair FC Fluorocarbon, Ande Monofilament Fluorocarbon and Maxima Fluorocarbon, each with a knot, still had an average breaking strength above the manufacturers claim for that line.
Comparing Measured Fluorocarbon Leader Breaking Strength with Manufacturer Claims
With the results of the experiment, Cabela’s Seaguar Fluorocarbon proves to be the strongest fishing line, exceeding manufacturers’ claims by 4.48 pounds and a percent of rating of 129.85%.
Comparing Measured Fluorocarbon Leader Breaking Strength with Manufacturer Claims
Therefore, although a knot in the leader weakens the breaking strength, there was little change between the Ande Monofilament Fluorocarbon without a knot and the Ande Monofilament Fluorocarbon with a knot.

Since Uni Knots are used with leaders while fishing, the overall recommended leader was the Ande Monofilament Fluorocarbon, because it exceeded the manufacturer’s claims by 2.46 pounds with a Uni Knot.
