I haven't tried it. What are you looking for and why do you think nanofil might be what you are looking for?

I'm just curious..thats all. For some reason, I think of dental floss tape when I see it on t.v. , and was just wondering if anyone used it. Maybe the walleye guys use it....

There are some bass anglers using it. I have heard them talk about it. A very few seem to say good things about it but it makes me wonder why so few bass anglers are talking about it?

So, I couldn't remember what nanofil is so I looked it up again. It is Berkley's new Dyneema fishing line made a new way into a 'single strand fiber' they claim is thinner and smoother. Berkley seems to be the primary company that has used Dyneema to make braid opposed to most companies using Spectra.

Nanofil is probably their answer to the new, thinner Spectra braids. I have tried those and I really, really like them!! Thinner. Smoother. Softer, and casts very well!

Of course, I'm using P-Line XTCB 8 Braid since I've been using primarily P-Line for many years now and have always had better luck with their Spectra braid products. I still use their older Spectrex IV on some of my rods because it tangled less and held up better than other brands out there for me, especially when I was in Brazil peacock bass fishing where some of the others using that popular brand were breaking off, while I was not breaking off! Pretty important when you're fishing for the hardest fighting freshwater fish in among the flooded snags!!

I still buy Spectrex IV when I see it because it is often at a bargain price! I have switched over to the new XTCB 8 though for lighter uses and certain specialty rigs because it really is thinner and smoother. I really enjoyed using it this season!

NanoFil is expensive. On my line tester, meanwhile, samples of 8-pound (labeled) NanoFil broke as high as 16 pounds. That's really quite amazing considering how thin the stuff is in the first place. The only drawback I can see, other than price, is that people will have a difficult time trying some knots because of the line's extremely small diameter.
