Default terminating power pro fishing line

Can someone explain to me what knot to use to connect the line to the connectors. Wanting to use 65lb test for my 35 size profile planes. And what type connectors can be used.
Thanks.

Jay sees just wondering why your using fishing 65 lb test line to fly your profile 35 powered planes. Is it something to do with electrical conduction with stainless lines?AJ

Nothing to do with electrical. Just going to use power pro Hi-Vis fishing line. A lot of people are using it to fly their control lines with. And is economical.

Thanks for your reply, I got back into U Control about a year ago my first flight after being in RC for a long time. When I was in My early teens I got hooked. Only 049 I built was a Little toot. I used fishing line. And it stretched,quite a bit. Went to .08 stainless single stran 20 foot. My first 35 was a S1 Ringmaster. .014 58 foot. As I recall. Still fly my S1 and a few others. Building a Super Ringmaster this winter. I will make a wild guess your fishing line your using don't stretch. AJ
