The Berkley FireLine Ultra 8 Superline was developed by Berkley scientists as a thermally fused strong 8-carrier Dyneema PE fiber braid. This line is one of Berkley's most durable lines to date. The fused 8-carriers make up a tough line that is 4 times more resistant to abrasions than the normal FireLine. Rounder and smoother, the FireLine Ultra 8 delivers longer casts than ever before.

The Fireline Ultra 8 Carrier 30# test line is published at .015" (.38mm) and equivalent to 12# test mono.
I didn't get near the amount of line on my reel that I should have (according to Berkley's published numbers), so I measured the line diameter. I happen to own a machine shop so I have the means to make very small, accurate measurements. Surprise!!! The actual line diameter of the Fireline Ultra 8, 30# test is AT BEST .016" (thats with a firm squeeze on the line while measuring the diameter). That makes the Carrier 8 equivalent to Trilene XL 20# test (according to Berkley's website).
At $40 for 300yrd a spool, of which I purchased 2 of them, I wasted a large amount of left over line (approx. 100 yrds each spool) that wont fit my reels because the line is SO much larger than the published diameter. I should have been able to put 320 yards of line on each of the two reels I was spooling. I would accept and/or even expect a small amount of "left over" line, but 1/3rd of the spool??? Thats a lot of waste for such an expensive line.
For the good... the line is slick, round & smooth. I also like that the line is fairly stiff, at least while new. I like the qualities of the line so far. The crystal color looks darn near like white colored monofilament.
So, in conclusion, be aware that this line is much larger in diameter than published (at least in the 30# size). Don't buy too much line as you may only use ⅔ of a spool. The anti-abrasion qualities of the line, knot strength, castability and such is yet to be determined.
