Virtually invisible and proven not to spook fish! Designed to refract light just like water, Berkley®'s Vanish® Fluorocarbon Fishing Line is virtually invisible to fish. Vanish Fluorocarbon also maintains its strength when wet (unlike other lines), casts well, and is sensitive enough to detect the softest bites. Plus, Vanish offers excellent shock absorbency when you set the hook.
Berkley® Vanish® Fluorocarbon Fishing Line
Not for big fish
This line is probably the weakest I've ever used. I bought the 14lb test and only use it as a leader. The knot strength is very weak, and I've lost 3 good size fish due to this line. I set the hook and the line snaps. For 14lb you will have the confidence as you would of a 6lb test line. The only thing good about this line is I have had more bites. I will try another fluorocarbon line but not this brand. Save your money invest in another brand and don't buy because of the brand name.

Landing my second walleye, my 4lbs Vanish leader broke at the knot. I reeled a 2lbs walleye. I used the palomar which is supposedly strong (I used it in other fluorocarbon lines and it works great). Just as I was about to grasp it, I lost the fish and my lure! On the other hand, I give praise to Berkley's Nanofil line. Everytime I hit a snag, the Vanish leader always breaks first.
I think I have a love-hate relationship with Berkley, this fluorocarbon line needs to be phased out IMMEDIATELY. I wish I read the reviews before I bought this when it was on sale. STAY AWAY FROM THIS LINE. It has inconsistent performance, it does make your catch VANISH after all...

very strong durable line, a little noisey while reeling, must have line very moist or will fray while tieing knots

I noticed this discoloration last fall on a fishing trip. I use Kevin VanDams flourocarbon line spray, after fishing with line aweek later and spraying the line with the treatment, it cleared up. Not sure if it was visible while it was stained, but it did clean off and returned to its natural underwater invisibility.
ive fished murky and muddy waters for years and so far with my experience using the flurocarbon line no it dose not effect it at least not enough u should worry about it but if it dose try using reel magic spray on lube it will keep the dirt and muck off the line and it wont be able to stain it
I've never had this problem in my area but you may want to try WD-40 or Goo Gone sprayed on a towel and your line run through the towel to see if that takes care of it. I've had good success with those products for removing a variety of stains and sticky items left deposited on alot of items.
Not reealy that would only affect it if u then went and fished incredibly clear water like say table rock were im from in missouri or bull shoals the line should actualy be less visable due to it take on the water charter risticks but if your still woried about it you can always respoll
well if your fishing dirty or muddy water and your line is muddy probally not but if it gets mud on seperate parts of your line then it does because the fish can se what looks like a pattern of mud wads.
I think that the better question is, does it effect the visibility of your fluorocarbon? The answer yes it will but only it you were to go fish clear water. Even though the line might stain a little I don't think that it would be enough to cancel out the light refraction of the line especially in murky water. I fish inland lakes so I am all to aware of your problem. Also, if I can land bass on braid then I don't think it would pose a problem. Good luck, see you out there!
