Suffix Nano Braid

This has probably been discussed somewhere else, but every time I did a search I found Nano fill from Berkley.

 

Sounds like it would be great for light tackle spinning finesse presentations. While it is not as tough or abrasion resistant as 832 it is supposed to be thinner, smoother, more consistent, cast further, and ties good knots unlike Nano fill.

 

I ordered some 4# and 6# for testing purposes. It starts at 2# and 3# and goes up from there.

I to just ordered some. For a few years I have been using Nanofil from Berkley. While the stuff casts the best of all lines it has some issues. Like a short lifespan due to pilling and weakening and tieing knots was a little tricky. I was getting less than one year of use when doing a lot of casting. I'm willing to give up some casting distance for a more durable line.

 

PS I think the Sufix Nanobraid is too new for a review.

Yep Dyneema, whatever that is.

 

Will see how it fishes and how it holds up. The initial reviews are that most folks get about an additional 20' on their casts compared to 832.

 

Not gliss, but another evolution in tight weave braid manufacturing.

 

For my applications I will start with a leader, though the pan fish specialist who tested it tied it direct. Since I generally fish clear water and it is not that abrasion resistant a leader sounds like good idea to me.

Ohero is braided Dyneema its been around for a while & I have 7 reels spooled &  is Nano technology produced . Nano in it self can have a little problem w/ holding knots & picks up color in the water , so if your water is dirty brown it seeping into the line for color change . These problems don't happen w/ Ohero . As far as casting its the BEST I have ever used , very abrasion resistant , great holding knots & it takes a very long time to wear down. 

 

agree w/ Icepants : "  PS I think the Sufix Nanobraid is too new for a review"

 

Let use know by using the new Sufix how you like it because the fishing people like to know

 

Tight lines Hook I

I'm a big fan of all suffix lines that I've used so far from the mono's to the performance and 832 braids so I guess I will have to give this one a shot too. What I like about suffix brand is the consistency, each spool I've used is as good as the last which can't be said for most manufacturers who are always trying to cut costs to boost profits by sacrificing quality and consistency.

we can have a distance comparison at the fling.  6lb 832 vs gliss vs nano

I think Gliss would probably win that one especially with your new 8'1" rod though I am looking forward to with fishing with everyone and sharing some time with like-minded folks who love rivers and fishing them.

 

832 is probably one of the best Spectra lines and the Dyneema lines are new kid on the block with more developments to come.

 

I will be interested to see how Nano Braid performs compared to 832, but I doubt it will have the same toughness.

 

The Ohero sounds good too, but the lightest pound test I have found so far is 10 lb. I may try that on my medium rod because it sounds like a very good performer and is priced well.

 

The Dyneema braids are also supposed to be more sensitive which is another thing that piqued my interest.

Ive had no issue's with the Nanofil from Berkley. But I do swap out my line every season. I do find that it can be improved on the abrasion department thou.

Wow!  I got the new Suffix Nano Braid and it is really thin and smooth.  A 150 yard spool looks like there is hardly any line on it.

 

I am really looking forward to giving a try.

It has been out long enough for testing.  Several of Rapalas pros who are endorsed by other line companies are quietly using it to drop shot.  The main difference is that there are 3 micro strands of nano fillament as opposed to one strand like Nanofil

 

Then those are braided at 42 PICs (weaves).  For comparison 832 has 32 PICs per inch.  Wow.  This stuff is bad ass and its holding up in tournament conditions.

Tell me about knots......

:)

 

How do the terminal knots hold.

 

If a 6 turn uni knot holds....that will tell me alot.   Nanofil and gliss don't hold with a basic uni unless you go nuts with the wraps.

 

Whoops...sorry Chris...aimed at Jay....same time post.

 

Check out the river rat fling at the top.  You are more than welcome to join in the fun!!

Got my spool in as well. IMO feels just like Berkley Nanofil but the tensile strength threshold seems higher when I tested it side by side. Already spooled up and ready to go for this Sunday out in the river. Feels like knots are easier to tie and slip less in the wet test I did
