Rated 5 out of 5 by Neuby Best line ever
This is the best line I've ever used for ice fishing. Doesn't freeze like braids but has the same strength and is easier to work with. No memory is incredible. Tried on one pole last year and strung six more this year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Buller Cast it a mile, but loose your lure
All the reviews said nanofil had no stretch, no memory, longer cast, and very slick. All that is true! I was amazed at how far I could cast! But if the line breaks before the fish is in the boat, I'd rather use my boot laces. The first time the line broke, I thought I caught a huge pike and it cut the line quick. A few cast later, the lure got snagged on a stump, and I know I didn't pull on the rod too hard. But the line broke close to the reel, almost like the line had a random week spot. I lost $18 in lures that day, and I'm not willing to give Berkley another 20 because I may have bought a bad batch of line.

I tried this line out for the first time and I was not disappointed. I have always purchased Berkley products and I am never dissatisfied.

Rated 3 out of 5 by John Great casting line.
For spinning reels, this is a great casting line, sensitive and won't stretch BUT easily gets brittle after a couple fishing trips (took 2 trips). Once that happens the line breaks easily. Also the price is a little over the top since the line quality doesn't last long and you're only getting 150 yards.

All day yesterday this line kept breaking. I found that it frays and then breaks. I lost several lures due to this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by IlikeSA Good stuff!
While it is pricy, I find the nanofil fishing line to be a good product. It is a specialty fishing line though, so it should not be used by someone who is new to fishing. I go fishing 2-3 times a week, and it is most useful in murky water or with a long flourocarbon leader.
It does require you to use a double palomar knot, with a wet line while cinching the knot down. Examples of this knot can be found on Berkley's website, and I recommend using a swivel to tie into, then a leader of a different (cheaper) line on which to tie your lure.
To break it down to pros and cons
long lasting (no need to restring on a frequent basis)
no knots and birds nests
very long casting
smooth and quiet
easy to tie knots because of low memory
does not absorb water
lightweight and thin
easy to see underwater, hence the leader or murky water usage
special knots and setup (you want to backfill your spool with monofilament)

Rated 4 out of 5 by Bill M Nano Fil Good but not perfect
Nanofil is very good braid. It cast long and is very slick. But there is the rub! It is difficult to tie knots with it. Tieing to a floro leader is tough. It took me several tries with the slecial knots to make a solid connection. After that, it was great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Trout man Best line out now
This stuff is great. Cast like a bullet and strong. Holds knots very good also. Blows power pro away.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Buckxpert Great New Line
I used the 4# test line for jigging and casting soft plastics for panfish. This is a very sensitive and easy casting superbraid line. Be careful casting when using split shot or other weights as it is very easy to tangle due to the bolo effect. Because it is so limp and thin, knots are very difficult to untangle, so make sure you also have sharp scissors for when you need to retie. Wish it came in other less visible to the fish colors. Until then, I use a 3 to 4 foot flourocarbon leader.
