Just as an afterthought of interest,I have made thousands of casts with any combination of the above without break-offs,(casting from 2-5 oz, mostly 4oz-plugs)but as soon as you cast in a severe cross-wind, the knot becomes vital.This is brought about by the line being blown in a bow between your Grinder and first-guide,even before the leader knot gets to it.As mentioned, into, and with the wind from behind, most knots will play ball,severe cross-winds can be avoided, but it decreases your target-zone.
