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.

    • which models of striker bibs/ coat?
    • That little doe is a sweetheart. Reminds me why I gave up hunting. But I did it for more than six decades from MN to MT to AK and Canada. Before somebody jumps in with a snide  comment, I don't care if YOU do it but it is just not for me any more. Carry on. Nice pix....couple nice looking bucks.

    • I agree; stay away from the extended warranty.  If my dealership (Village Chevrolet) won't honor the original warranty, what makes you think they will honor an extended warranty?  This problem was discovered well before my warranty ran out and they still treated me like an ugly sister...

    • I can't say I'm much in agreement with Gary Johnson on this issue and I can admit it. I will say however that it makes more sense than the deal Pence struck with Carrier.   1. The carrier deal handed away state money while still being a net LOSS of jobs in that state. Johnson's program enticed new business into his state and resulted in a net GAIN of jobs and probably tourism dollars as well.  2. I think these types of deals should be handled as locally as possible. It's called representative government. Maybe it makes sense in the New Mexico deal that it be handled at the state level since it probably effects the state as a whole at least to some degree but I don't know. The Indiana deal should have been handled locally, especially if any of the tax cuts promised were property taxes. Those benefit communities at a more local level and the jobs saved benefit communities at a more local level. The state government possibly should not be handling these things but the Federal Government most assuredly should not be involved in these deals.  3. I'm pretty sure that the threat of interference with federal contracts had much more to do with the Carrier deal anyway so why did they give Carrier any tax breaks? I thought Trump was a tough guy and a strong armer? In the New Mexico deal, tax cuts are about the only leverage someone would have to bring that extra revenue and jobs into the state.   I'll say it again, I'm really not in favor of the government picking winners and losers. I do think the Pence deal is something that happens every day but the only difference is it happens at a local level and you don't have a blow hard President-elect taking credit for it normally. Time will tell whether it was a good deal or if the rest of the manufacturing community will hold the Government for ransom now like every professional sports franchise does these days.    Gary Johnson is in favor of replacing the current Tax code with a 'Fair Tax" system.
