ive been using berkley nanofil on my lighter spin reels and i really like it, it only comes in white, but that is a plus when fishing plastics etc as you can watch it, it wears well, the only thing is that it is slippery as all hell which is good for casting but not so good for knots, they used to use the slim beauty with braid but this slips with the nanofil, they recomend a double albright which works, but given i perfer the slim beauty i do a double slim beauty and it holds well.
the main pro about this line is it dose allow you to cast further im not convinsed it gives as much as they claim but i do get some extra distance when compaired to the same sized, 8lb berkly crystal fireline comparied with 8lb nanofil.
Have any of you ever thought about using Berkley whiplash braid. 20lb is only .06mm thick. I can only imagine how thin the 2-4kg stuff is. I use the 20lb and it is great stuff. Never let me down.
most 4 lb braid usually has an actual breaking strain of around 6-8 lb which is more than enough for your usual estuary species. just change your leader size for different species eg 4-6 lb for bream and whiting and 8-10 lb for flatties and small jew.
For the larger reel, 12-20 should be fine. as before 12 breaks at aound 16-20 lb and 20 lb breaks at around 30 lb. Again, just upgrade the leader as required. _________________ Tight lines
