832 Or Nanobraid?

Recommended Posts

So I'm a braid/leader guy and have been using SuperSlick. The line is getting old and needs to be replaced. I have read a lot of good things about Suffix. My question is, I have done some reading but can't seem to find what the difference is in the regular 832 superline and this Nanobraid? It's going on a 7' M spinning rod I use for the Ned rig. Obviously a light bait and the most important benefit I need is casting distance. I will probably use the 10# line. Which of these would you use for this setup? Any other lines with good castability?

I have no experience with Nanobraid, but I know a few guys who swear by it for dropshot. As for 832, this is my go to braid. I use it on spinning and casting gear, in various different sizes. I've tried almost all the various braids on the market, including some of the higher end one's, and I still go back to 832. The only other braid I would recommend would be the Pline TCB X Braid (8 carrier).

I personally don't like the waxy coating on 832. Can't stand it, actually. Double palomars a get ugly in a hurry and it can be quite grabby.  Also the line you're using a month in is simply not the line you spooled on- the coating wears off and it changes.  Not really a fan of that.  

I vastly prefer Smackdown as it is thinner, smoother, more supple and casts over the moon in comparison to any other I've tried.

SX1 and FX2 are also fantastic lines and VERY tough but I run recoil guides and smoothness is a bigger deal to me so I run Smackdown. If I ran other guides is likely have stuck with these lines- SX1 for 30# and under, FX2 for 40# and up.

No experience with 832, but I believe it is supposed to be a sinking line, and of course smoother, for better or worst.

 

I have used Nanofil in 10 pound test and it is very smooth, silent.  I don't think it is as durable as regular suffix or power pro, tends to separate with use.  It is very challenging to get good knots with it; they recommend a couple in the line packaging.  But having said all this, it casts beautifully.  But so does any 10 pound braid.  If you don't like the noise of the other 10 pound braids, it may be for you.  I think its silence is its only unique characteristic, and maybe with all the other braids I haven't used, that may no longer be unique.

No, Suffix is not a sinking line just has a gimmick thread of Gortex with the 7 threads of Dyneema.

Not everyone agrees.  From an Outdoor Life review of 832, Todd Kuhn:  "Well, much has changed since those days. Now I’m a firm believer and user of braids. The one drawback is that these lines sink too slowly for certain techniques. Enter Sufix 832. This superline is suited perfectly for techniques that require deep-water presentations or the use of fluorocarbon. The combination of Dyneema fibers and proprietary GORE fibers makes for a braid that sinks plenty fast."  Suffix printed material does not address sinking vs. floating.

Sufix 832 is good braid.  Nanofil the jury is still out for me.  I had some weird problems with 8lb Nanofil breaking on me.  I re-spooled with new Nanofil and seeing if the same problems resurface after use.

I appreciate everyones feedback so far. Keep in mind I'm comparing Nanobraid not Nonofil.

If anyone determines for certain that 832 sinks - please let us know...  I honestly can't imagine that it does unless they changed its composition this year....
