With Berkley NanoFil, deemed the best overall new product at the big fishing-industry trade show (ICAST — the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades), getting all the press, the new  Berkley XL Armor Coated has gone almost without notice. The company says the new line is just as manageable and castable as Trilene XL has always been, but with a new abrasion-resistant sheath. They say the line is 40 percent more abrasion resistant and 30 percent more flexible.
