How do you like Berkley X9? I'm going to give it a shot. I know Berkley Big Game is an oustanding mono, especially for saltwater applications.I use Spiderwire 30# braid for my surf spinning rods and 6 and 8 # Berkley X9 for freshwater spinners. Freshwater baitcasters get X9 in 50 or 65#.
X9 is great for freshwater fishing. I used to use Nanofil B UT X9 is tougher and casts better..How do you like Berkley X9? I'm going to give it a shot. I know Berkley Big Game is an oustanding mono, especially for saltwater applications.
CYT,Spooled my brand new 2500 Shimano Ultegra $300 spinning outfit with 164 yds of Berkeley X9 10# and was extremely disappointed. The first 10 yds on my third or 4th cast frayed big time leaving only a couple of strands left. I was fortunate to get my rig back and had to re-tie. Stuff ain't cheap either. I'm going back to good old Sufix 832. Shame on you Berkely!
