I double my line through the swivel eye and then do a 5 wrap uni.

A palomar or uni knot are probably the two most common. Both are solid knots that will work well with braid.

I use the palomar to tie every knot on all of my fishing gear, may not be reccomended for some of my applications, but it's a super solid knot and very easy to tie. Definitely reccomend it for a tie to a leader.

I suggest using some cheap, old mono when learning Buchers power knot - I'd have gone through half a spool figuring that one out! Just a bit tricky getting it to draw down right.
