Different strokes, I like the fg and always have at least one back up ready to go.The love for the FG knot is over hyped.
Its a great knot to tye when you have time and conditions warrant it. On a rolling boat and in a hot bite you will find few tying it.
In fact guys who are fishing really high drag pressures on really mean fish (GT, Dogtooth) are not using this knot.
They use twisted leaders, with albrights and loop to loops. They do it because its fast and as strong as the FG without the hassle of tying an FG.
So yes, if you want a knot that has great strength the FG is the ticket. But for these light drag pressures you are fishing with 2/0 hooks and the like - an albright with the knot outside the guides for casting will work fine and - its really simple to tye.
I still use loop to loops for everything. And I have caught BFT from 30 to 700 pounds on the LtL.
The idea the bait swims better with other connections is anecdotal and personal preference.
