Worst line ever
This line is the worst line I have ever bought. Thought Stren was bad. Bought 15# test. Couldn't put a one pounder in boat without it breaking. Folks I've been fishing for 44 years. Reason I bought it was my eyes are bad now and wanted to night fish with florescent line. Fellow fisherman think again before putting this junk on.

Houston has sold out
I have used Trilene XL for over 30 years; it is great in all applications. Used to fish over 100 days a year but now average 40 or so. Still the only line I need. Use sizes from 6 lb to 14 lb and tie the Trilene knot.

Have used many lines over the years, but always have the best best usage with XL. It's strong, ties easy, and is by far the best of all I've used. After using others I will always stay with Berkley Trilene XL.

You should take a large Pyrex glass cup nad fill it with hot water. Let the spool sit for around 2 hours. Take the spool out and put it on your reel wet. The memory will be eliminated and it will pack hard on the spool making it easier to fish.
OK, so here's how it goes with line: Stren is not good line. I have had various bad experiences and the abraison resistance is terrible. Trilene is pretty good, very low memory, lots of stretch, so it is not suited for frogging or jerkbaiting. With Trilene XL, respool every six months or so or it will start to knot and get a lot of memory. It is the same deal with most lines. I personally prefer to use flourocarbon or braid for all of my fishing. flourocarbon is great in thin weeds or in midwater presentations. For flouro, go with seaguar. they have the best. for braid, go with spiderwire or suffix. I prefer suffix for mono too. I have used many different lines and these consistently work the best.
When spooling your reel, make sure you pay attention to the line. Sometimes you'll start to get twist, at that time, flip the filler spool in the opposite direction of the twist. Also, reel the line through a rag soaked with line conditioner. It helps to keep the line form twisting.
Line memory can be compounded in a couple of ways. Make sure when spooling that the line it is unrolling from the spool and not looping off from the side of the spool. This will add a twist too the line causing it to perform as if it has memory. Secondly in cool weather use line recomened for ice fishing. For it is designed to stay limp. Thirdly line on the spool for a year or so un-used will get memory. This is true with any line. So re-spool often with the proper line for the season and do it properly. I hope this helps. I just wish I didn't have to learn it the hard way. Best of luck.
XT stand for extra tough, it has a tendency to be a little stiff it works quite well on bait casters but it has a tendency to jump off of spinning reels. I like XL idt is not as stiff, I use XL on baitcasters and spinning reels.
I primarily use spinning gear, so for me, Trilene XL is the best choice. I want a smooth, easy, and accurate cast and I get it every time from this product. If I'm in an area where I worry about abrasion, I just run the line through my fingers periodically and re-tie if necessary.
I like the smooth casting better. Extra tough is super thick and is a bit difficult to cast. extra tough also has higher memory. if would need extra tough in a situation, just use a higher pound test in the smooth casting.
