Stiffer than many other braided lines


You may be a little surprised to feel how stiff this line is when you first use it, but personally speaking, I actually prefer a stiffer braid while using spinning gear. Wind knots are virtually nonexistent with Berkley FireLine Ultra 8 Superline. It stays very compact on the spool and even if you make a bad cast, it won’t jump off your spool and cause any irritating tangles. 

This stiffness also seems to reduce line bowing when you’re working your baits. In windy conditions you can lose a lot of sensitivity due to the large curve that’s introduced into your line above the water, but I’ve noticed a noticeable reduction throughout my time testing this particular line.
