Ive used it for lure fishing. Floats on top of the water well. I did colour the line with felt tip to disguise it a bit. Seems to be a bit more stretchy that normal mono, saying that i never had a brake off. Seemed have the same abrasion rate as mono too.

I looked at the stuff, but you can buy a reel for the money it costs. they must be laughing all the way to the bank. I wonder how few pennies it costs to manufacture.

Have tried it for light beach casting and found it to be quite vile stuff. I am pretty skilled with knots but the nanofil has be beaten - theres just no way I can get close to Berkleys claimed knot %

The other main problem is as it is so limp it can crack off due to ring wraps etc at the speed of light. When I can get a cast away the distance increase looks to live up to the hype. Dam impressive!

I will try it for lure fishing next year as the increase in casting distance is very attractive but don't know what the f**k to do about the knotting problem............
