Easy to handle all-around performer.
Beginners & Top Pros Use Berkley® Monofilament Fishing Line
When you match your line with your fishing style, Mono often fits the bill. A short, single strand of material as the name suggests, Mono is an easy-to-handle all-around performer. It’s ability to absorb water makes it a loose, relaxed line in the water, stretching and handling better and casting farther. If you’re out to take on a thrashing fish, Mono can withstand the sudden impact of a hard hookset and the battle that ensues. And, with its sought-after combination of manageability, stretch, easy knot tying without sacrificing strength (a Trilene® Knot or Palomar offers nearly 100 percent knot strength when tied with premium Mono), it’s ideal for first-time and seasoned anglers alike.
Mono: Designed for Performance
Mono is popular for its stretch. More stretchable than Superlines and Fluorocarbon, anglers enjoy Mono for its high degree of forgiveness. If your drag sticks, or you set the hook too hard, Mono compensates by stretching up to 25% or more. Its massive stretch under pressure prevents tearing a hole in a fish’s mouth, and it balances its stretch with shock strength to withstand impact. Mono also tends toward higher diameters, and you can use the extra breadth to your advantage — such as to slow the fall of a Berkley® Gulp®! or PowerBait® Softbait, or threading a bait through cover.
Many top bass pros prefer a beefy Mono like our Big Game™ over Superline for pitching jigs. It offers excellent shock strength and is built for battling trophy catfish, pike, musky, bass, and other big fish. Our abrasion-resistant workhorse line, Trilene® XT, is ideal for fishing in and around rocks or cover. And professional grade Trilene® Sensation satisfies the need for extreme strength while also being sensitive and manageable — it’s been trusted by our Berkley® pro staff for more than a decade.
