Default Nanofil degrading

Really like this stuff for casting distance but I've noticed after being on the spool for a month or so it gets frayed with some weak spots. Not real durable.
Kind of reminds me of fireline in that respect. .May be an abrasion problem

Anybody else notice this? I'm in the process of switching all my reels back to regular braid. I was using the 14 lb.

Interesting... I've heard mixed reviews. That said, many of the good fishermen I know like it. I'm interested to hear the response here.

The stuff is almost too thin. I still like mono for tubes and most metal. More flutter=more fish.

I like it but it frays too easily IMO. I switch spools when I'm fishing rip rap areas.

I've used it in the past, and recently started using it for my ice fishing setups. Love it for the ice stuff. The only problem I had with it for my open water gear was tying leaders to it. Too damn slick, it seems. Had a lot of line to line knot failures with that. Other than that, no issues.

I just started using it and love the distance I get out of the casts, tying a leader to it does suck! Anyone fish it with no leader?

I have used this for most of my ultra light fishing, which for me is most often. I tie leaders with a double uni, line twist is the biggest issue in concern with wear. Smaller swivel than with mono, and let the line untwist every few casts. There is no give in nano and will usually snap at the knot if snagged on a rock or stump, or on the rare occasion for me a big fish.
My two cents.

Double albright solved the leader problem for me.

I've fished it with no leader using the "nano" knot and had good success with soft plastics and even managed to land one 30" pike on it without getting sawed off. I love the casting distance with it, but it is rather easy to break off and frays more readily than the braids.

I have since switched to Seagar Smackdown and haven't had those issues. Been using the 10lb for lighter lure applications and it is pretty strong for as thin as it is and still allows for good lure action. Drawback is that it is significantly more $$$ than the Nano.
