Berkley Trilene Professional Grade Braid - $19.99 to $47.99
Tournament-level braid worthy of the Trilene name, the Berkley Trilene Professional Grade Braid was designed for Berkley’s top pro’s on tour. Featuring an advanced 8-carrier Radial Braid construction and the highest-grade Dyneema fibers available, it is strongest braid Berkley’s has ever created. Its optimum blend of pick count and 8-carriers creates a weave that is ultra-round, smooth and quiet. It stays round for better manageability, casts further and doesn’t “buzz” through the guides either thanks in part to a special coating that also holds color longer than other braids. Pro-approved and tournament-tested, Berkley Trilene Professional Grade Braid is what you want on your spool when everything is on the line.

Comments: Line does not break during a cast because the line "sucks". The only way that happens is if you had a horrible backlash and whipped the lure real hard or you had a knick or fray somewhere in your line and did not know it. You can cast a half ounce lure on 4lb test mono and it will not break during a cast if it isn't damaged. Some of the line reviews on here make me wonder how some people are smart enough to even spool line on their rods.

Comments: line breakage during a cast is a product of a "zero stretch" line. All braided line will do this if you backlash on a hard cast.

Comments: you guys need to check your guides for scratches or damage if you're getting so many line breaks. That stuff doesn't just happen because the line sucks. I have super old 8 lb test that I use and it never does that kinda nonsense.

Comments: I second the first review, I bought this new berkley braid 30lbs because berkley is my go to line, flouro, mono as well. This pass weekend I was throwing around a 1/2 lipless bait when all of a sudden after a cast I heard a snap and along went my lure shooting off in the distance; however I did get my lure back becuz braid float and after pulling 20 yds of braid off the water my lure was on the other end; so that showed me my knot didn't break the line did. I hope it is a bad batch, time will tell.

Comments: I have to admit. I was very excited to see a profession grade braid by Berkley Trilene. I love their 100% floro so I though I would give the braid a try. I bought 30lb test to use for Northern Pike and I must say I am not too happy with the line. It frayed a bit and I lost like 3 spinner baits just casting and it clean snapping off, not at the knot by the way. I think I will try it again and see if maybe it was just a bad batch or what not. Its knot strength is great and hook sets are what you would expect of braid. I would give it 3 out of 5 in hopes that the fraying and breaking was bad luck or I was doing something wrong.
