Mel...the Sands Tackle version
Which I recently learned does use a Uni Knot as you said to anchor the mono on one end first and then uses overhand loops with the braided lines back and forth (about 10-12 turns each way).
They recommend putting in a little tool to keep the first loop open you make with the braided line. When you are finished making your loops coming back towards the mono, the tag end goes through that loop to finish the knot off.
The knot may look more complicated to tie than it really it. And least I thought so until I spent about 10 minutes watching Rich at Bob Sands tie it. In no time, I had it down. It's actually easier to tie if you have your reel anchored (like on a line winding machine) and the braided line on a spool (also on a winding machine).
