Has anyone used this? I've only used monofilament and was thinking about switching. It sounds like a good product but wondering what people actually thought about it. Would I have to tie a leader to this?

I love it for casting. It truly does give you more distance. However, it is not very abrasion resistant and isn't the strongest knot line either.

It's slick as snot. Casts a mile, but as Dakota stated, it's pretty weak if you're fishing cover. And as Dakota says, watch those knots... The fact that it's so slick, causes some frustration with knots.

I think they have a knot that they recommend on the packaging, but for line to line (for leaders), I think you're gonna wanna tie a blood knot or an improved Albright.

I use it on my Jerkbait rods. I use the 17lb with a four foot section of 15 lb floro as a leader. Been throwing it all year thru the rocks and timber without a single break off. I also have some 10 lb nano on two off my jigging rods. Love Nano!!!!!!!!!!

its great. I made the switch last year and will never use anything different. its a heck of a lot more sensitive too. you feel a lot more than you would with mono. great when the fish are barely biting.

like everyone else says you can cast it a mile and dont have to change it nearly as much. well worth the price in my opinion

I use it a lot now, at first I went with the same pound test I used with mono and had breakage and knot slippage. then I went to thirty pound test, it cast farther and no breakage or slippage. for trolling I don't use a leader and have found it doesn't seem to mater but for slow presentations I use a twenty lb floro leader 2 to 10 feet long, we placed in 4 tournys in a row last year in the high desert walleye assn. in New Mexico using this rigging. we were fishing in heavy brush down there. we boated from 30 to 100 walleyes per day.

I switched all but a couple of my rods over to nano this year-I throw 14 lb with a 6-8 ft section of 10 lb fluro. No breakoffs. I doubt the line, by itself is very abrasion resistant.

Casts a mile and very smooth-the few times I've gotten wind knots they come right out. There is a learning curve with this line but worth it.

I use the same setup for my Jigging Rods...
10 lb NANO (green) with a 3 ft flouro leader, tied on with "crazy alberto" knot...
No problems as of yet...

I use it as well both with and without leaders and have pulled quite a few fish thru some gnarly stuff and large weed beds without breakage or visible damage. However, I do clip off about six feet of line prior to each outing which is one of the recommendations on the packaging. I also use the Nanofil Knot (this is not the only name I have seen for this knot BTW).

I have used the 17lb and 12lb for both trolling and casting applications and agree I casts a country mile with ease.
