Berkley Nanofil Line Low-Vis Green - $19.99 to $38.99
Now available in Low-Vis Green - Berkley’s NanoFil Uni-Filament Fishing Line is the next generation of fishing line - and in a class all its own. Not a Mono. Not a Fluorocarbon. Not a Braid. It's constructed from gel-spun polyethylene, much like a superline, it consists of hundreds of Dyneema nanofilaments that are molecularly linked and shaped into a unified filament fishing line. Dyneema is one of the world’s strongest fibers, providing NanoFil with superline-class strength, as wells as zero-stretch and exceptional sensitivity. Berkley’s uni-filament process also makes it feel and handle like a smooth monofilament, while still allowing it have the performance characteristics of braid. The ultimate spinning reel line - Berkley NanoFil Low-Vis Green Fishing Line is the longest casting, thinnest and most sensitive line Berkley has ever created.

Comments: Although the line casts fantastic and has zero memory, my experience has been the durability is virtually non existent. In just a few hours this brand new nanofil broke. not 6 feet from the end, but more like 25'. nearly lost a new crank bait & smallmouth in the process, but was able to snag the end of the line and hand line the fish and bait to the boat. removed some more and restrung and same thing happened the next morning. I should have known if Berkley prints a warning inside the label to watch out for fraying and to remove the last 6 feet periodically.

Comments: Really have to say, I am a braid lover through & through but I'm never going back unless I need something SUPER heavy. NanoFil casts smoother and farther, reels in quieter and frays less. I find it superior in every way possible, I just wish there was a smoke color! I seriously feel as though tying something else on is a waste of time and money now. Just ALWAYS wet your line and tie a double palomar and it'll never slip- and anyone who is having trouble keeping baits on has not followed those very simple instructions!!

Comments: Sold!!! On a recent trip to NY in November, for salmon and steelhead this line performed flawlessly. Used 17lb Nanofil with a 17lb Floro leader, the Floro broke before the Nanofil ever did. You MUST do your homework on this line, watch the video and us the proper knot. Both my son and I used this line for 2 days with no problems. This line casted farther than anything else we used with less effort. This line will be spooled on all my spinning reels from now on.

Comments: I did not like this line at all. Spooled on a 2500 size spinning reel. The line laid in elongated coils on the surface after the cast. It also did not cast as well as power pro. Seemed overly stiff. 17 pound. I hope TW will take this line back for a refund.

Comments: This line is all I use now, along with a FC leader. Everyone who complains about this line has not done their research and has either not used the correct knots, AND/OR DID NOT WET THE LINE when tying the knot. Friction and Heat will kill any knot and line when tying, especially with todays super lines. When I first purchased this line, I was ignorant to the recommendations and snapped knots easily when clinching down a knot and was very frustrated. I went and did my research, and when either using the Nanofil knot, double uni, and wetting the line, it holds true. Sensitive, super slick and smooth, and sounds like a bass cord when setting the hook at times. You will need a mono backing or rubber based spool, as it will not spool because it is so smooth. If tying directly to lures that go bang against rocks and submerged trees, you will have to check it after moderate use, as it will get banged up and start to nick and fray. Simply cut and retie. I also agree with Harry from Hodgenville, KY. Much better used with FC Leader, as it will not chip or fray easily and holds well. Also because this line is not invisible. As with most super lines, you can see it, and looks like thread or rope in the water. Awesome line.
Comments: WOW...being from the Northeast, for years I have searched for the perfect spinning line and tried all the fluoro's out there. Braids I didn't like most of them and our water's very clear and I found braid to fluoro breaking off a lot. This is still very much like braid but it's not actually "braided"...it's not woven fibers...it's one single uni-filament fiber...so its very smooth but has the look of a braid but feels smooth like a mono/fluoro...u have to see it for yourself...But it is the BEST spinning line...Doesn't get terrible line twist at all...it's so limp and has no memory. The sensitivity is incredible like braid. And I can use a 12lbs test line but the diameter ismore like a 6lbs test at most...I would reccomend a backing as it's so thin u'd need a lot to fill a whole spinning reel and it would probably slip as some haave said...Also...I always tie on a 6'-8' leader. I use 10lbs test berkley 100% fluoro if I'm fishing a weightless worm/plastic or if water's a bit murkier/more cover and in lakes with larger fish...If i'm truly finessing them with a shakey head worm, drop shot, inchi wacky...Then I use a 6-8lbs leader of fluoro...but I stick w/ the 12lbs Nano-fil..anything thinner would be like HAIR n just too thin for me...It has phenomonal sensitivity and incredible handling and castability. SO...If you want the sensitivity of Braided line, with the handling and managability better than any fluoro/mono, with better casting distance than mono, and durability of the toughest co-polymer, and the invisibility of fluorocarbon...Fish Nano-Fil with a fluoro leader. It is the best of ALL worlds and the leaders have not been a problem for me at all.

Comments: I bought a spool of Nanofil right after it was released and have had it on the same 2 spinning reels since with no issues. I use a double Trilene or Cinch knot and a Spro #35 micro swivel. Add a couple feet of Trilene 100% flouro and its the best drop shot and shakey head set up.
From: Eric: Spring Lake NC USA
Comments: OK----You need to tie the appropriate knot (palomar -/ doubleUni too Furo-carbon) if you dont want to loose your lure. It will shrink in cold water and you will loose your knot if not tied correctly....You also must have a mono or rubber backing on your reel---this stuff will slip before engaging the drag especially in colder water/weather...However if you take these pre-cautions you will not find a better casting more sensitive line for spinning reels.

Comments: Greatest superline I have used. Beyond sensitive and strong if using the right Knot. Double palomar as demonstrated online. Greatest for dropshot. Used same line for a year
From: Kyle: IL
Comments: This is the worst line I have ever used for breaking. It has good sensitivity but it is not strong enough. I lost two crankbaits due to the weekness so I changed back to regular monafilament line. Very disipointed.
From: Harry: Hodgenville, KY
Comments: easily the best drop shot line I have ever used. 12# test casts like a dream and has amazing sensitivity, it lets me fish lighter weights and smaller baits during the tough summer bite. I have read about the issues with it fraying but I use 7# FC sniper as a leader using a double Albright to connect them. I have never had the connecting knot or mainline fail on a fish, I would not use this without a leader but that's just me.
Comments: Casts well...and thats it, its expensive,its slippery so knots don't hold, and it breaks too easy. I had to respool on the first day in the boat, my only option was stren 20lb mono left over from ice fishing and I was happy to switch!
From: Brent: New England
Comments: This is a great line, the bait comes off the rod like it was shot out of a cannon. Only down side is it tends to fray pretty easily. I have only used the 14#. May not be worth the high price though.
From: Jim: New England
Comments: Finally!!!! been waiting for this for almost a year now!!! gonna spool every reel with this stuff. its sooo good and when people complain about breaking off its because of two reasons. 1. not tying the right knot. and 2. not checking the line for knicks in it from abrassion. if you do these two things correctly you will be able to use this line to its full potential!!
