COLUMBIA, S.C. – Berkley® NanoFil® was awarded with the Best of Show and Best New Line Awards at this year’s ICAST show in Las Vegas, Nev. Berkley NanoFil is the first uni-filament line. NanoFil is optimized for use on spinning reels. It provides the angler with effortless casting, strength and superb sensitivity all in one small-diameter line.
NanoFil was recognized by the voters as the top new product overall and best in line category for 2012 by the select ICAST attendees, which include active editorial journalists and retailers.
NanoFil is made out of gel-spun polyethylene, much like a superline. The line consists of hundreds of the highest level of Dyneema nanofilaments that are molecularly linked and shaped into a unified filament fishing line. NanoFil feels and handles like the smoothest monofilament while delivering superline-type strength.
“This line has been in the making for nearly several years,” said Clay Norris, Sr. Berkley Product Manager. “NanoFil is the ultimate spinning line for anglers that demand the best. Anglers now have sensitivity, strength and the ultimate in casting distance all in one small diameter line. Winning the 2012 Best of Show and Best Line awards is a great honor for the entire team. Our partnership with DSM Dyneema and continued commitment to enhancing the fishing experience makes this line truly spectacular.”
NanoFil line lends itself to a wide variety of techniques, but it is most useful when anglers desire an ultra small diameter line for greater casting yet also need maximum sensitivity to feel the subtlest of bites. Anglers will also recognize enhanced accuracy. With NanoFil, anglers can enjoy the feel of light tackle action for a wide range of species, yet still detect even the softest pickups and land what is on the end of the line.
For best knot strength results use the NanoFil Knot, a “Double Palomar” that increases knot strength by over 15% that of the standard Palomar knot. For attaching leaders to NanoFil, a Double Albright knot is recommended.
Available in pound tests ranging from 1 to 12 pounds with super thin diameters of 0.001” to 0.008”, Berkley NanoFil is available in 150-, 300- and 1500-yard spools with an MSRP of $19.95 to $179.95.
