This line has been on the market since I started fishing, and it’s been tough all through the years. It doesn’t split or knot up. Well, it may fray a bit but that’s after quite some time and I don’t mind it at all. A bit of trimming gets the thread back on track and it’s still way better than threads and lines from other manufacturers. It is smooth, has a really nice feel and is utterly sensitive. The advanced technology used to make this line makes it so easy and efficient to use. It is good for fast and long casting, and it goes in smooth with absolutely no memory.
The colorfastness is better than any other line I’ve used, especially on the hi-vis colors. I’ve used this line since 1996 and it never disappoints. Now it’s even better, tougher and smoother. It is tangle free and has perfect knot strength. If at some point you find that the knot strength is lower than what you need, then it is time to trim the thread. After two or three trims, it might be time to change your thread depending on the frequency of your fishing.
I recommend Berkley Fireline for any fisherman: from those who are starting out to those doing bass fishing. I’ve tried it in the roughest seas. It is not perfect, but it’s almost unbreakable. It may be more expensive than other braided lines, but it definitely gives you much more value for your money. It lasts longer and you’ll be surprised how much weight your normal rod can carry with this line. A tip for those using reels: when you spool a new line on, try and use it for smaller fish. This line is really strong and heavy weight on the first catch might damage your reel.
