I use nail knots and they don't seem to bite through the coating if tied evenly and tightened from both ends. Yet, what is even better is the epoxy splice -

Sharpen the butt with a razor (sounds hard, but it's easy). Strip the last .5-.75" of fly line.

Chinese finger the butt inside the braided core until it bulges the coating a little so you know it got all the way down there.

Apply a drop of zap-a-gap.

Tie a perfection loop on the other end or just use the butt full length. You can always cut it and loop it later. You'll never even feel it coming through the guides.
