It’s plenty strong


You can have the most supple and sensitive line in the world, but it won’t do you any good if it breaks on the hookset. This is exactly why I always pay close attention to the strength of any fluorocarbon I test. So far, Berkley Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon Line has passed with flying colors. I can say this with absolute certainty: I have never broken off on a fish with this line. It’s some stout stuff.

I’ve been able to horse 6-pounders from underneath boat docks with 20-pound test and finesse big bass out of deep brush with 8-pound test and it has not let me down. It has proven to be very abrasion resistant and the knot strength has been impressive as well. I use this line quite a bit for leader material when I’m finesse fishing and I never have to worry about knot failure. It’s even tough to break on purpose when you’re snagged in cover.

I’d put this line against many other popular fluorocarbons when it comes to pure strength.
