I used vanish all the time and then switched a few reels to 100 trilene. I have never had a problem with vanish, but like the trilene also.  what i have started doing is using trilene on my finesse applications because i have noticed that the lower test trilene are strong as heck.  The way my budget has shaped out lately, I have had to cut some costs, so 6 and under I use 100% and 8 up I use Vanish.

My first flurocarbon expeirance was with Vanish a few years ago, I did not like it, unmanagable and poor knot strength. This year I returned to flurcarbon with the Trilene 100%, love it. Now for the weird part, I wanted to put fluro on another rod I had one day last spring, my supply of Trilene 100% was all on reels. Went to the store where I bought my line and they were out of 8lb, so I went with Vanish. I honestly like/love it this time around and I can not............repeat can NOT tell the difference between the 2  lines at all.

This question comes up quite often. Some people like Vanish, most do not.

I fished the original several years ago and it was one of the worst lines I

have ever used. I have heard much better reports on the "New and Improved",

but I will never give it a shot:

Burn me once, shame on you.

Burn me twice, shame on me.

I do not like Berkley Vanish. It was my first Flurocarbon experience and luckily I tried Yozuri Hybrid later on or the Vanish would have soured me to flurocarbon.

I had problems with knots and breaks with Vanish. Stay away from it there are a lot better lines out there. They even cost less.

Its too brittle IMO.

I had the opposite experience of RW though. When it first came out, I thought it was pretty good but once Berkley introduced Transition everything went down hill. I don't know if I'll ever try a Berkley flurocarbon again. I'm using BPS XPS Fluro right now. No compaints with it.
