Just wanted to let you guys know that I tried this line over the weekend and boy does it cast. I could get another 10' at least on each cast.

My local Academy store had the 4lb line on clearance for $3.98. I bought three spools and can't wait to give it a try.

Ive been running it on a couple of my rods for a little over a year. It casts a mile and then some. It's super sensitive too, so much so that it took me a little while to get used to it.

Ive heard good things about it but Im not sure really. I am partial to my little braid.

Been using 4# since it came out. Love it. There is a learning curve with it but it's time well spent.

Read the knot packet that comes with it. Most knots will undo themselves because the line is so slick.

I tried it for a couple days on the water.
I liked the smoothness and sensitive part.....but I thought it broke pretty easy compaired to mono

I switched back to mono on a couple rods.....and then tried suffix 832 braid.

I really the suffix. Its smooth for casting,very limp...and pretty strong. Its 6lb though,

Been using it for past 2 years and will continue. Its abrasion resistance is low and visability high so use a flourocarbon leader on the business end. Sensitivity and casting distance far outweigh these shortcomings. I tie to a small barrel swivel and tie leader and jig to that. Makes changing jigs quicker and easier to tie. That nanofil knot is really fun to tie with weak eyes and a stiff wind.:eek:

with nanofil the lightest line I went with was 6#, 2 and 4 would break tying knots too easily.

Super,

The knot packet is a double polamar knot. So hard to tie, and I think it stinks?

I use a 12 turn Uni knot with all the superlines. With my PowerPro braid, I use a 12 turn Uni to a 6 turn Uni with the mono. With the NanoFil, I use a 12 turn Uni direct to the lure. I can tie a 12 turn Uni in a couple seconds after a bit of practice.

I've never had a "undo" problem with NanoFil. I love that line, I think it's the best spin line by far. I now use 2 lb test NanoFil (clear mist so I don't have to use a leader)

The line will last forever, and has no memory or stretch at all. With my UL spin, I can cast super tiny lures with no problem at all.

Double palomar vs 12 turn knots? My 2 and 4 pound test always broke my pull test. 12 turns is too much for me

I'm a big fan of nanofil. 2 lb test on my bluegill rod to throw the small stuff. I use a regular Palomar wet it before you pull it tight, no problems for me.

I love the nanofil line. I use 4 lb test and I have just been tying a loop jig knot and I have not had any trouble. I will pay more attention now and make sure I don't have knot breakage. It sure is limp, I haven't had a tangle yet off a spinning reel. I love that. Wes

I've had poor knot strength tied directly to a lure, but I have pretty good luck using a flouro leader. It will cast a mile.
