Berkley Vanish

10 posts in this topic

Just wondering how everyone thinks of this brand of flourocarbon line? I just bought a pack of 14lb vanish last night and rigged it up on my Shimano Citica 200E. Plan on using this for cranking/spinnerbaiting and maybe some texas-rigging. At only $11, I'm hoping it's worth the money for 250 yards.

all that stuff is really good for is leaders.. i tried some on my shamano and it would backlash like it had something to prove no matter how tight the friction thing was it would still back lash when i quit reeling.. makes a great leader tho!

I have 12# on my baitcaster and backlashes are rare. I think the lines casts pretty well too. No complaints here.

i've used it in 12 to 17 pound test with no line conditioner and it works fine. i get more backlashes with my reels with braid than the ones with vanish. i actually think it gives less backlashes than the 100% flouro that berkley has to. just my 2 cents.

I too only use it for leaders. I use 12 lb and 20 lb tied to heavier Power pro. I really do like the stuff for that purpose but I've never spooled anything up with flouro. Don't see any reason to as I like the uni knot.

I had alot of backlash problems with the ice version. Won't use it again, except for maybe leaders.

I tried it and didn't like it. I think it is very susceptible to breakage on hooksets. I would pay the money for berkely 100% flouro.

    • This is great... I barely finished my '17 Yetti and now its already outdated.
    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )
