The development of seven years research and formulation in the making, Berkley have partnered with the legendary DSM facility to bring a new formulation of fishing line, it's not mono, it's not braid and it's not fluorocarbon, Berkley engineers have named Nano in it's own category "Uni-Filament".
Nano is fused using a heat process that binds over 300 fibres together - most manufacturers would use glue - however with Berkley's patented process these fibres will not come apart like most others. To sum up the science, Nano casts further with less effort; lures will run deeper because Nano is so thin that there is no resistance or drag hindering the sink rate.
Its smooth outer means that it is highly abrasion-resistance and the recommended knot for ultimate strength, is the double Palomar! And for joining to fluoro or mono leaders Berkley recommend the Allbright double. In amongst all the science, this line has just picked up the EFFTEX award for best new product innovation. Praise indeed!
Not a Mono. Not a Braid. The Next Generation of Fishing line. NanoFil is made out of gel-spun polyethylene, much like a superline. This ultimate spinning reel fishing line consists of hundreds of Dyneema® nanofilaments that are molecularly linked and shaped into a unified filament fishing line. Dyneema, The World’s Strongest Fiber™, gives this line superline type strength and our uni-filament process makes it feel and handle like a smooth monofilament
