Today was my 3rd trip with it, the #40, this has to be about the best line for me I have ever used, super sensitive, casts great and yes per the label longer casts than I ever did before, no backlashes happened, very slick and caught some very good hybrids and stripers today on it, the green just disappears in water. I have tried about every braid and for me nothing compares to Gliss.

The negative is and will be for some it is super slick, any inferior knot will slip, I really like it, you will need backing with the 150 yd spool as it is so small for it size and does not fill the spool much.

Anyone else tried it? Thoughts?

Will update on the Gliss in about a month more of use I should have 15+ trips on it by then so far great, I would not care for the smaller test as it is too small dia.

If they had 50 instead of 40 I would have got it.

I have some spooled on a Shimano Sahara 2500. So far I have used it strickly for crappie fishing, and it works great.
I think it's 17 pound test, and seems very strong. I tried casting a small crappie jig (1/16 oz) and it goes a mile.
So far so good. It's very sensitive, haven't really caught anything big, but it's ok for what I'm using it for.

I just bass fish and use the 24# for light to ultra-lite and 40# for heavier duty--both are the PINK color. I would not purchase any size smaller, the smaller diameter superlines have very low shock strength.

Probably 27-30 trips on it so far it is getting light fraying on the fish end still cant break it working fine, I imagine I will reverse it in a month or so, hoping to get 6 months or more from it.
I do wish they made in in 50-65#

Thanks for the reports. I was curious about Gliss after reading about it.

Another 5-6 trips at least on it, still working great, a spray of Reel Magic sure does help it even more, my original green is now silver gray color, never broke it yet and saved many lures, usually retie at least 1 time every trip. Palomar knot followed by overhand granny never slips. I still would buy it again over all the rest. It should do well on dead stick trips this winter. I will use a mono leader then.

Since Sept over 50 trips using Gliss still for me the best I have used for my fishing, not 1 break. I have not reversed it yet, just wish they made it in 50-65 and cheaper. Another trip tomorrow with it.
Some light fraying happening in the last 10' or so and color went to light gray, 1-2 reties per day done.
No regrets at all using it and plan to keep doing so. Not many store have it.

Glad I came across this thread. I bought some 8# green Gliss from Academy since it was on sale. Looks to be about 3# mono diameter and I like that size for the sunfish and panfish fishing I get. Tried Nanofil this year (green 4#) and really like it, but the price is really high compared to the Gliss, especially on sale. Gonna try the Gliss #18 300 yd spool this upcoming Spring on a bass spinning rig. Thanks for the reports!


Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and all that is within me,
bless His Holy Name!
