I've used Berkley Trilene XL for over 30 years. I always had NO problems with this product. I just bought a spool of 12 lb. line. Very hard to spool up with the new line holder grooves despite putting tape over them. Then I snapped off a $15 lure on a hook set. I've been using 8 lb. and thought 12 lb. would be hard to break. Not sure what they did but will not buy another spool of the "new improved" line until I'm desparate.

by AJHauser My Favorite Mono
This is my absolute favorite mono... here's why:
THE GOOD: This line has been around for some time. It is very manageable, it has low memory - and I know everyone SAYS that about their product, but this is for real - and it is pretty strong. I have found it to be very reliable, I get great knot strength with it, and have no problem tying fluorocarbon leaders direct with back-to-back uni knots.
THE BAD: It's not as strong as other lines of the same pound test, which is probably due to the smaller diameter - but that smaller diameter results in lower line memory, so it's a trade off.
If you spool up properly you won't have any issues.
THE VERDICT: Even though we are barraged by new superlines that "do everything", there are still many reasons to use mono in a lot of fishing situations. Trilene XL is an inexpensive, exceptional product that has given me consistent results for years. Walleye or bass, spinning or baitcast - when I buy mono, this is it. Period.

Rated 1 out of 5 by flintriverbasser terrible spool
" I have been using Trilene XL for years. It has always been a great product, especially for spinning reels.
But , the line now comes on a new "improved" plastic spool with "notches" for saving remaining tails of line . These notches are on each side of the spool. They catch the line and scratch it while filling my spinning reel. I got one reel spooled out of 6 ( I bought 4lb for 2, 8lb for 2, and 12lb for 2) and I am giving up. I will return and buy something different.

Been using Trilene for years. Always a great product.
But , the line now comes on a new "improved" plastic spool with "notches" for saving remaining tails of line . These notches are on each side of the spool.
They catch the line and scratch it while filling my reels .
Solution was to put tape over these notches to keep them from snagging the new line as it goes onto my reels.
Still a great line but not worth the hassle and possible abrasion of the line.
