Anybody use it? How is the stretch and abrasion resistance and do you like it? Thanks

Good line, no problem with it. I like Seaguar or Sunline a little better though.

Berkley has way too much line memory for me, used it for about a year then switched to Seaguar blue label so far I like it. Good stuff IMO

I tried them all and settled on it. It is more abrasion resistant than invisix IMO. I broke off a lot of fish with Invisx. It is stronger but not as pliable as the others. It does have more memory but that's the tradeoff with it being stronger.

I use it on almost all my soft plastics. It's tough and I like it. I use the 15 lb and 17 lb.

All I use also. Like everything
else you will have tons of opinions. I will
say it's pretty dang tough with a good
knot (San Diego jam).

Agreed.

I like Seaguar InvisX too but I think Berkley 100% is stronger... as it should be. Compare the diameters of the two. Berkley is much larger pound for pound than InvisX. 17# Berkley is the same diameter as 20# InvisX at 0.016.

There's your answer. The line is strong. . .but it's also cheap, which means it's going to be thick. That also means lots of memory. When I was using fluoro I used the Berkley line for a while but switched to Invisx solely because of the memory. It'd be coiled after every trip, and even stretching it didn't have much effect.

Use KVD's Line & Lure on it and it does away with the memory.
