Rated 5 out of 5 by BASSFISH66 big game line
This is outstanding line to use for fishing,I've used big game for over 10 years now on both bait casting and spinning and found it to have no problems putting the line onto the reels and during the use while fishing, strong and it will take a good licking on stickup and general use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LiLItalt71 Best Line Ever!! By Far!
Here it is folks, believe it or not, it happened,
My brother and I went to the local river, Susquehanna, at Fort Hunter Recreational Park, we met up that morning in June to do some lunker small mouth fishing tho I am a avid cat/carp fisherman. We went out in a 12ft jon boat with a trolling motor, battery, and gear, and of course us, an easy 500lbs. We got to our favorite fishing spot and casted in, needing the trolling motor and anchor (tubular) to keep us from drifting down river. the battery died after the first half an hour. We were trying to figure a way to get to shore without loosing our gear, I had this idea, and put my plan in place. I had Berkley BigGame line on my rod and it never bird nested or snapped in the five years I had it on my rods. I casted up the river and snagged on one of the boulders, and pulled us slowly UP river and slowly got to my snag, where I handed my first rod to my brother and casted and snagged my other rod, to do the same. We eventually made it all the way back to the bank of the river. We both looked at each other and said WOW, I will never use another type of line EVER, currently still have that same line on my rod for the last 8 years and still has yet to snap, or birds nest, if you ask me it's the best BANG for your Buck!

Rated 5 out of 5 by yeacomeon77 My "go to" line
I have used this line from 8 to 15 lbs since I started fishing. Yes, sometimes it can be a little finicky when you first spool your reels, but if you spool it tight (keep tension on the line while spooling) it helps a lot. Also if you are using a baitcaster, make sure the line is coming off the top of the spool, not the bottom when you are spooling. If you use these two tips it helps a great deal and for me it virtually eliminated the little hassle. I have been in the boat with my buddies a lot when they are breaking off and loosing good fish due to sub-par, cheap line. This line is cheap, but it is awesome! The only fish that has gotten away has been when I was pitching docks and hooked one that ran under a pontoon in the docks and got cut on the prop. Advanced to beginner this line is where it is at.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Chockpish1 Best saltwater line for the price!
I have been using Trileen Big Game line for the past three seasons! I have caught fish on the twelve pound test, that would have broken any other line of the same diameter! I have literally dragged out logs that had other lures stuck to it from other lines breaking! I fish mostly freshwater, for tout, this line in the six pound test is wonderful! Although it does have some memory, it works great. Great abrasion resistance, great knot strength, great castability. In saltwater application, is where it shines. I have caught strippers from 6 to 15 pounds with the twelve pound test. I fish from shore, where there are lots of rocks and other snags that can do a number on lines, but the Trileen Big Game survives way better, and at least three times longer than any other lines I have used! I use it on my spinning outfits as well as on my baitcasters. I have never had any problems with knots on my spinning gear or loops, probably because I close the bail by hand, not with the handle, and make sure the line is on the roller before reeling in, it reduces line twist dramatically and loops as well., also I pay attention on how I loads my reels, making sure the line goes on the right way. On my baitcaster, I have almost no backlashes, I am kinda of new to baitcasting, so backlashes are going to happen. As I practice and use it more often, and set it correctly, I have almost eliminated them altogether. I you want a good line for few bucks, try this one it works for me!
