Default NanoFil fishing Line

Does anyone here have any experience with NanoFil fishing line from Berkley? I picked some up today. Itís supposed to be the next-gen fishing line to use on spinning reels. They say it increases casting distance in a very noticeable way and is much stronger than monos. Hopefully Iíll get to put it to good use tomorrow morning.


Any experiences good or bad would be helpful.

Never heard of it. Sold at BassPro? Did switch back to mono on my inshore spinning reels for a short time. Used Ande Backcountry, but still did not cast as far as braid, so put braid back on. I use 10# PowerPro for reds, spec, flounder, etc.

Just to post a quick report. I fished yesterday using exclusively the new NanoFil line that I picked up at Academy Sports. This stuff is as advertised. It is definitely unlike fishing with braid or monos. I didn't have one line twist or tangle all day The line has almost zero memory, which is fantastic. I was skeptical about an increase in casting distance, but I really did have more distance on my casts. The only downside to using this new line is price ($20 for 150yd) and you must use a special kind of knot to avoid slipping.

All in all, I loved using NanoFil and will keep it on my Penn Fierce. I can highly recommend.

I use to have it on a few of my rod until I started have break offs. I had 9 break offs total,5 in one day. Yes it does cast very far but my .02, use spiderwire invisa-braid ultra cast. It is much more durable and it casts equally as far as nano-fil. I thought the nano-fil was great the first few times also but you'll start to notice small frays everywhere in line.

I was told mono is better than braid for top water and trout fishing in general because of line stretch and lure action is this not true? I wanted to put braid on but I wasn't sure what was best so I went with mono.

It's neither. It's a new line technology.

Interesting. Were the break-offs where you tied the line to the lure or in the middle due to the frays?

It's got about a three month lifespan till it begins to fray and break way to easily from my experience. I got threw away three reels worth, no sense in losing a good fish to crappy line.

The break offs weren't at the knot, they were somewhere in between the knot and the tod tip.
