Default Loop knot for light line

Hey, what do you guys use for a loop knot on light line/tippet?

I use the perfection on stuff > 10 pound test, but below that I've read that perfection is significantly weaker so I've always gone to the surgeons loop.

What do you guys use on lighter stuff when you need a loop?

yeah, I like the surgeons knot for light stuff. It seems that with the perfection knot, I struggle to really cinch it down on the light line.
