Comparison: 2lb Fireline Braid vs 4lb Nanofil
on February 21, 2018
Nanofil is new to me, so I’ll try it for the first time this year (2018). I am an ultralight fanatic, so I have grown to LOVE Berkeley’s Fireline Braid series, specifically the 2lb/4lb/6lb selections. I’ve tried everything else, and Fireline is my favorite for the simple fact that it’s virtually indestructible and unbelievably thin. I landed a 5lb largemouth last year using an ultralight Quantum Smoke reel on a 6’6” ultralight Daiwa Presso rod with 4lb Fireline, not to mention some MONSTER catfish and a 35lb snapping turtle! Fishing with ultralights forces you to compete with the fish and apply your skills and techniques to the sport; that’s what I love.
I haven’t fished with this new 4lb Nanofil yet, but here are some side-by-side pics to show you how it compares to the lightest Fireline they make. LOOK AT THAT!! Nanofil is literally thinner than Fireline even when the Nano is 2lbs heavier! (There’s also dog hair in between the lines....also for comparison LOL)
I’ll update this after I test the Nanofil during trout season in April!
