Default knots for thin tippet

I usually use a clinch knot when tying on a fly, but with thin tippet, such as a #6, I sometimes have problems with the knot slipping off or the line breaking as I try to tighten the knot. I use six twists and I spit on the knot before tightening. Is there a better knot for thin tippet-- one that doesn't requite too much dexterity? I can tie the Orvis knot.
