Berkley® Trilene® Big Game® Line - 1 Lb. Spools
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.

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!

Have tried a few lines in the past and this stuff is tuff tuff line! I would buy this again and again against all the other highly marketed lines! dont over pay for line which will all break at or around the same breaking strength save your money and put it towards gas to get you to your favorite fishing spot!

not for casting
this line backlashed on most every cast. it is not family friendly. my wife and daughters could not cast this line without it knotting and wadding up. i could only load 50 yds. onto my reels and cast it the line all the way out to prevent backlash, it is not berkley quality. i was using the 12lb line..
