The ultimate line for spinning reels, Berkley®'s NanoFil™ Uni-Filament Fishing Line delivers the ultimate in casting and sensitivity. Not a monofilament or braid, NanoFil Uni-Filament is the next generation of fishing line featuring unified filament technology which molecularly links and shapes hundreds of Dyneema® nanofilaments into unified filament fishing line. And since Dyneema nanofilaments are stronger-than-steel, NanoFil has a thin diameter and is incredibly strong. This advanced construction process also makes NanoFil Uni-Filament easy to cast, exceptionally sensitive and virtually free of memory and line tangles. NanoFil is optimized for use on spinning reels, and its ultra-thin diameter may dig into baitcast reels during hook-sets.

  • The next generation of fishing line
  • Not mono. Not braid.
  • Unified filament technology
  • The ultimate spinning reel line
  • Effortless casting
  • Superb sensitivity
  • Minimum diameter with maximum strength
Berkley NanoFil Uni-Filament Fishing Line 3.7 5 114 114
Wow, this stuff is awesome!!!!! I actually laughed at this line when I first saw it and never looked at it again. It felt like Teflon tape. I saw a buddy catch a 26" red drum with #8 Nanofil on a 1000 Penn Fierce Reel. Figured I'd give it a shot so I bought some #12 Nanofil and put it on my Fierce 2000 and boy is this line awesome. Casting is silky smooth, no wind knots, and casts much further than any other braid I've ever used. Got hung a few times and could not break it loose! I backed it with some mono and then put the whole 150yds on and tied a #12 fluoro leader with a uni to uni knot. Bought my first spool on Friday evening. Fished it Sat. morning, caught an inshore slam (trout, flounder, and drum). Came in for lunch and went and bought my 2nd spool to re-spool another rod to take with me Sat. afternoon. On my way home Sunday, stopped and bought my 3rd spool to re-spool another rod. This is the only line I will put on any of my spinning reels now! October 15, 2012
You Need Nanofil on your spinning reels While no line is perfect, Nanofil is close to perfect on a spinning reel. Throws further than mono. As sensitive as braid. Easy hooksets from any distance. Increased visibility for visual strike defection when dead sticking. I use 6 lb for trout and panfish. I use 8 lb and 10 lb for bass fishing. I don't see the need to go any heavier than that. Higher initial cost, but with the durability of the line and by putting a prudent amount on your reels, I believe it is about the same cost in the long run. I've used a reel with a single spooling of Nanofil for over a year with pretty frequent use. Superior product. November 6, 2014
LOVE this line!! have used for 2 years now and i love it.. as long as you use a dbl palmer it runs flawless!!!! zero memory!!!! BRILLIANT!!!!!! August 4, 2014
Fine fishing line Loaded my reels with Nanofil and headed to Canada Fished all week caught some big northerns and walleyes. Never had a problem with this line. No knot slip or breakage all week. July 28, 2014

A: 
You will see some fraying. It has always been in the first couple of feet. I have not had any failures linked to that.
I simply cut that piece of line off once the fraying is bad enough to worry me.

Yes, it does fray more than I would like but it is strong and I use it on my crappie rods as I catch big bass and hybrids sometimes, one other thing is it has coil memory that is very annoying to us.

the idea that it will scare the fish is Absurd...you rune a 6 ft leader of flourocarbon or mono.
Think about a fly rod and the fly line????
no problems right??

sue the 2-4lb nanofil for trout and use a 6ft leader you will be fine

A: 
In super clear water I think you should use a low vis fluorocarbon or mono leader of appropriate test. That way you know you are making the best possible presentation, including the option for a loop knot to lure (there are no loop knots for Nanofil). Uni-to-uni knot works well to join leader to Nanofil. The benefits of Nanofil are in long casting and great handling at long distance. If you are fishing close-in, small water, pocket water, I'm not sure if you'd see a benefit. If you need long casts to work the far, far end of a long pool, you'll reach them and hook them and love Nanofil.

I have found the diameter to be much thinner that conventional lines.

I use the 12lb and swear I can haul in twice that.

I am guessing 8lb would be stronger than advertised too.

A: 
The 8 lbs test is very strong and thin but it's really for light flexible limber rods. Go with 8 if that's the kind of rod you like. If you like a fast action medium rod then try 12 lbs test. Just back off the drag so you don't break off on hook sets, the line doesn't have the stretch like mono to absorb excess shock.

A: 
This is strictly opinion... but my experience with the 12 lb nano is that it is comparable in strength to my 20lb flouro. I work heavy cover and get snagged lots. Same for heavy grass, etc. The 12lb has to be way stronger than 12lb test to survive what I have put it through and it is exceptionally thin.

I have this line on several rods from ultralighs to heavier bass rods. The line has performed flawlessly each and every time for over a year now. Line diameter is small and performance is big. Use a flourocarbon leader to tip it with.

Staff Answer
A: 
If you are looking purely at the strength aspect, then 12 pound test line is the way to go. 8 pound test is still a very strong line and may be needed in some applications. If you are using the line more for finessing presentations (dropshotting, wacky rigging, etc), using the lighter line may be better. But if you are using it for applications such as spinnerbaiting and crankbaiting the 12 pound size may be the better route. Please keep in mind that I am speaking on this in terms of normal bass lures, however, the sizes may change if you are using lures say for crappie and bream.

A: 
No way. It will dig in and snap on a cast. It can be finicky on a spinning reel if it isn't spooled right (I learned the hard way).

On a baitcaster you will be destined for failure after your first catch, snag, etc that will have the line nice and snug. Then on the next cast....... SNAP and say bye to your lure and most of your line.

I believe its designed for spinning reels and doesn't work well on baitcasters being that the line is so thin. The line would sink into the wraps on the BC, really causing a mess.

A: 
Double palomar is what they show and advise.

I like it. It works & easy to tie.

I have also done some snell knots & had great success.

Just want to make certain you tie/rig to minimize abrasions on the line.

Use the double palomar. It works great with this line and is fast and easy to tie. No need to try anything else.

The double Palomar is a great knot. For the time I used the line it worked wonderful with no slip. I use the double palomar for my knots with mono and braided line also. It is a very strong and easy to do knot.

A: 
I've used braid for years and the best knot is hands down the Palomar, which means the double Palomar is even better. Braid does not slip with the Palomar. The Uni knot is also a good one for braid. I know the Nano isn't a true braid but the Double Palomar never lets you down. Use saliva when you cinch so you don't burn the line. A little dab of glue on the knot helps if you're not sure.

I would recommend the Double Palomar knot. I used it and it never had any issues. I bent the lures a few times but knot always held up.

A: 
if you plan on just tying strait to the hook there is a high chance for a slip. the best way to tie on a bait with this line is to add a mono or floro leader. this will allow for the nano to grip into something and pevent a slip. it also helps with line visibility.

Does it float or sink?

A: 
It floats, but not enough to lift your bait at all.
I typically use a fluro leader which eliminates that near the lure.

I am using the 4lb line for ultra-light fishing and this line will float. Not sure about larger pound test line. I suspect it will float as well. Hope this helps.

Details: 
I'm using #8 nanofil with #10 fluoro leader. I suspect this is one of the most difficult leader knots to get working for 3 reasons, the slickness and thin diameter of the nanofil, plus the slickness of the fluoro. I'm having good results by doubling the nanofil and using using an alberto knot (modified albright). I'd like to know if anyone else has any other leader knots that work.

A: 
I almost never use a higher strength leader than main line. The knot will fail at the nano/ leader connection almost EVERYTIME when the lure is sure enough stuck.
I use an Alberto knot most of the time and I have had great luck with it.
I have also used the uni to uni, but it is a thicker knot and robs some casting distance.
I have also tried a surgeons knot using three wraps instead of two. This works, but is not as strong as the other two knots. It is quicker and easier to tie, but noticeably weaker.

I'm using 8lb nano with 8lb mono leader and tied with a blood knot.

It hasn't broke a single time and is a small knot to pass through an ultralight.

Try a blood knot. I fished in muddy river and never used leader. If you don't use leader, use palomar knot.

A: 
I used #12 100% fluoro leader on #12 Nanofil with a uni to uni knot and it held up fine. I wrapped the fluoro 6 times and the Nano 10 times to make the Nano knot a little bigger.
I did the same for #15 fluoro leader on #17 Nanofil and it held fine as well.

A: 
Uni-to-uni joining #4 to #4 fluoro, #8 to #8 fluoro, and #12 to #10flouro. No failures. The Nanofill portion needs a couple of extra turns compared to the fluoro side of the knot.

Try tying a double uni-knot aka: back to back uni-knot and instead of wrapping the line the recommended 3 times, wrap it 6-7 times. I foound that little "trick" while tying fluoro to Power Pro Braided line By adding 3-4 more wraps of the braid prevented the slick Power Pro from "slipping..

A: 
I use a double uni knot to attach flouro leaders to braided main line. The regular uni is one of the strongest knots anyway and is one of the only knots besides the palomar for braided line that won't slip. Doug Stange, In'Fisherman editor, uses this knot for leaders as well.

A: 
I'm using 8# Nanofil with 12# Seaguar Fluorocarbon for the leader. I use a Modified Albright knot. I make the initial loop in the fluorocarbon and then tie the mod Albright in the Nanofil doing 8 wraps down the leader loop and then 8 wraps back up the leader loop. I tie this knot using a straightened paper clip as a stiffener and then remove the clip before I draw the knot up tight. I also wet the knot before I tighten it. Then I put a drop of ZAP-A-Gap on the knot mostly to smooth off the clipped tag ends so they pass through rod eyes more easily. Knot has not failed me so far.

I use a very simple triple overhand knot for attaching leader. I catch many large trout and have not had a problem using this knot. You can see how to tie this knot at the Trout Magnet web site.

Is this line clear or white?

A: 
It is white. I thought that would be a negative, but it turns out I like it and it helps me catch fish. I've caught lots of fish where I saw the line jump while the jig was dropping on a slack line or while dead sticking.
To save Nanofil, I'm always going to use a leader. The leader also eliminates any worry I have about the fish seeing my line.
