Mmmm…got me a bit stumped, but it definitely sounds like the issue is the knot joining to the loop - maybe it's putting a weak point or kink in the loop when tying it (a badly kinked bit of line will snap very easily).

I use the Bimini-twist all the time on my rough ground reels - 0.5mm Sufix mainline to 60 or 70lb Powerflex leader and use a "Slim Beauty" knot to join the two (in fact I use this knot to join all my leaders - it's tied with a doubled length of mainline so the loop of a Bimini is ideal). Never had a single instance of the knot snapping so it might be worth giving it a go and see if it still happens?

Never had any bother with shock leaders at all, just use run of the milll stuff tied onto the mainline using a shockleader knot, twice the rod length and six times around the spool.

Cheers,

aa.
