Berkley Vanish Fluorocarbon Fishing Line
I finally broke down and bought some of this line...bad move! This line is way to britlle, spools off the real, and breaks to easy. I tried it just as a leader for my Carolina rig...another bad move! Knot broke...and that never happens!!! I would not recommend this line.

I would recommend vanish to anyone who loves to fish,most people just dont care for the line, but i wouldnt use any other....It doesnt matter, spinning gear or baitcasting, 4 pound or 20 pound test, vanish is the best line for the situation, way to go berkley....

Terrible line for spinning reel, light tackle fish
I tried the original Vanish, and could not get it to stop unraveling off of the spool, even putting it on wet and adding Tangle Free. The only way I could make casts without it looping, was to make certain there was only just enough line on the spool for it to cast properly. After a year or so I decided to give the gold-tinted a try. Same dismal results!!I definitely do not recommend it for light tackle fishing! Too much spool memory, and not limp enough.

This line results in alot of strikes, due to its zero visibility, but I have broken off almost every single fish. The Vanish Transition is much, much better. Want to use flourocarbon, go with the Transition! Spend the extra couple of bucks. you will be glad you did.
