Default nanofil

Anyone use it? I spooled up one of my spin rods with it and it's sensitive as can be and casts further than any line of equal strength that I've ever fished. I found you have to check for nicks once in a while....but using a flouro leader will protect the line most of the time. What knot do you guys use for the leader to line with nano? I don't like the uni to uni for it....and the albright is a pain in the dark......so I'm gonna do a loop to loop connection for easier leader changes. Thoughts?

Yeah...I didn't have slippage...just always broke on the uni instead of at lure when I snagged up.....and a couple times on hook set but I think I had a frey. Just looking for faster and easier leader methods for night fishing....my eyes aren't what they used to be in the dark.

Ran a nanofil spool for a summer and ditched it.. Disliked it. Frayed easily and looked like it was hairy 2 months in. I run powerpro and havent seen any fray in 3 years. Chit my nano lost its color that summer too, power pro again like new. I uni uni cause its easy. Never had slippage unless i was jigging her violently hard and the rod bent the wrong way.... can we say brown trout?

Try a "double wrapped" improved clinch knot with the nano and a normal clinch knot on the leader. I've never had any issues with it at all. my 20lb leader will break before the knot will.

Thanks for the replies....I love power pro but I'm getting much more distance on my casts with the nanofil. I'll give that knot a try dakota....thanks.

I had fraying and strength problems with the green colored nano but not the white...I ditched the green but love the white nano...wouldnt think dying the line wouldnt matter but the green sucked...and sometimes the leader breaks at the lure and sometimes at the uni...
