i use suffix 832 and Gliss.  didnt like nanofil but have been wanting to try suffix nano braid.  i use 4lb flouro leaders and i have one rod still spooled with mono for shooting docks or casting when i need to slow down a little.  i spool the reel up with mono and then double uni the braid or gliss to that and then fill the spool up the rest of the way with about 50-75 yards of braid.  keeps it from digging and slipping on the spool and saves line and money.

get you a hard wood dowel for when you get hung to wrap the braid around to pull it.  never use your hand or it will cut you like a razor.

Thanks Kelly. I'll be giving it a try this spring. Got my 4 spools today in the mail.

Comment by Kelly Peterson on Monday

I used it a lot the past two years, 4# is the heaviest I used, mostly 2 and 3" for flipping waxy tipped tiny jigs. Amazon has the white in 2, 3, 4#.

Thanks Ken. I did purchase 4 spools on ebay but couldn't find #4 but they did have #6 so I got that. I'll keep my eyes open for some #4 meanwhile.

Comment by Slip Sinker on Monday

...once you start using it Dick you won't turn back... in my personal experience thinness is the most important factor when it comes to stealth... 4# is my favorite but have gone down to 3#... haven't lost a fish since I gave up mono in 2005 and have gone to super lines.

Thanks Vince. Couldn't find #4 which is what I wanted but did get 4 spools of #6. If I like it I'll keep my eyes peeled for for and get it a little later down the road.

Comment by Vince (Vinnie) Fusco on Sunday

I think you will be impressed with the added casting distance you will get with this line, Dick. It has really worked well for me. If I remember correctly, I am using 4lb. test.

Thank you Vince for the comeback, I think I'll give it a try since when I fish with rod and reel I only use ultra lite. I'm hoping I can gain in a little more distance in my cast.
