Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon is the newest line by Berkley. While it’s Trilene monofilament counterpart has been around for a long time, and is the #1 selling line, new technologies have emerged. If you have never used fluorocarbon line before, its a great technology with plenty of benefits for the average , to experienced angler. Less stretch, more feel, and durability are just a few of the obvious ones.
Berkley’s site says “It’s the Ultimate in manageability and the ultimate in invisibility. With a similar refractive index as water, fish can’t see it! It’s easily the most sought after fishing line by most of the touring Pro’s.”
Price: At $20 for 200 yards, the initial sticker shock is kind of bad. Not only is it 3 times more than your average monofilament line, but its only 200 yards, instead of the regular 300+. One thing to remember is that this isn’t a line that you are going to use a few times and then re-spool. Fluorocarbon lasts awhile, which is key to its success.
The Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon we reviewed consisted of 10lb test in the green color. Berkley also makes a clear colored line as well.
