Berkley FireLine Ultra 8
September 01, 2017
Just when you thought there couldn't possibly be improvements in fishing line choices, Berkley has introduced Berkley® FireLine® Ultra 8. This super strong and abrasion resistant line also is very thin, soft, and quiet. Berkley has crafted what's certainly the best FireLine in history by fusing an 8-carrier Dyneema fiber braid.
According to In-Fisherman's Dr. Rob Neumann, "This thermally fused FireLine has changed the fishing line landscape forever—easily their toughest, smoothest, and strongest line yet. It is the ultimate ultra-thin and supremely smooth long-casting line that also happens to be strong and extremely abrasion resistant. It's just as revolutionary as the original FireLine was when it was introduced in the 1990s. FireLine Ultra 8 is bound to help you catch more fish in many situations.
"Ultra 8 is super easy to work with, too," Neumann continues. "In many instances, simply tie direct to your lure or snap. One good, simple knot is a three-wrap uni-knot. If you want to tie a fluorocarbon leader to the end of the Ultra 8 for even more stealth, I make the connection with back to back uni-knots. But that's a story for another day."
Compared to original Fireline, Berkley® FireLine® Ultra 8 is four-times more abrasion resistant. Now that's impressive! Smoke and Crystal colors are available in 4, 6, 8-, 10-, 14-, 12-, 17-, 20-, 30-pound tests. Retail: $19.99 ($125 yards); $39.99 ($300 yards); $199.99 (1,500 yards).
