    A normal, double-knot is the way to go.

    Ive read somewhere that using a rubber band raises your tension by 5? Is this true?

    no, it is absolutely not true. think about it; the notion is ridiculous that a couple of ounces of force on two mains would increase the stringbed tension and stiffness by any significant degree. Things like string savers can raise your tension a bit since each one makes the string stretch an extra 0.2mm.
