Berkley Vanish Fluorocarbon Fishing Line
I would not recommend this line to anyone. I used this line last summer as a leader for several different applications and the only thing that vanished were the fish I caught and my lures when it broke!!!

Everyone of these reviews has merit.So maybe I can explain why some like it and some do not.
Berkley Vanish is a fantastic line for a baitcaster in larger # test(17-25).You cannot hardly break this line if you try.I use it on everyone of my worm/jigs or any type of swimming baits.With the exception of crankbaits.I will not use this line on cranks because I need lighter line and as a lot of reviews show the lower # test lines have issues.
I have found that when tying knots with lighter test.The line seems to create a lot of friction which basically burns it up resulting in broke line and lost fish.It is also horrible to throw on spinning tackle because of the memory.
So if your looking for an inexpensive flouracarbon.You can't beat vanish under the right applications.
All you skeptics give it a shot in the 17-25lb class and I think you will be surprised

STRONGEST LINE EVER!!!
I Purchased this line in 2 lbs. test for Rainbow Trout fishing and as unbelievable as it sounds I landed this 20-25 (NOT A TYPO) 20-25 LBS. Carp that I hooked by the tail fishing a Roostertail from shore. With help from an offshore angler when the Carp wrapped itself around a rock. I fought the Carp for about 1.5 hrs. using a 4'6" Shakespeare Microspin Spinning Combo and 2 lbs. Test Berkley Vanish Flourocarbon Line. UNBELIEVABLE!

I fish clear lakes and it really is invisible. I used to fish trilene xt and when I switched to vanish I was catching 6 fish to their 1. It gets my baits deeper as well as takes a beating from hitting stumps, rocks, etc. I have been hung up with this line before and I
have never broken off, unless I chose to finally cut the line myself. It's a great product and have been using it for 7 years.
