Berkley FireLine Fused Original was first introduced in 1996 as a ''Superline'' and it has remained the world's true Superline ever since. Not a conventional braid and not a mono, Thermally Fused FireLine changed fishing forever. The current generation of Berkley FireLine is smoother and tougher than ever with the same powerful strength, smooth handling and fast-casting you know and love!
Improved colorfastness - especially on hi-vis colors
Long and fast casting - no memory and smooth finish
Superb Sensitivity - Instant feel for structure and strikes
Thin diameter - incredible lure action and low visibility
Exceptional strength and toughness - Microfused Dyneema® fibers are 3 to 4 times stronger than mono
Hi and low-vis colors available - Ultra-hi-vis Blaze Orange and Flame Green, Ultra-low-vis Smoke
I've fished for most of my life, always using mono. Over the past couple of years as I've gotten into more saltwater fishing, I've really wanted to try braid for buck tailing and plugging but have been nervous about the challenges with wind knots and careful handling you read about online. A number of times I read about Fireline being a more "forgiving" superline, not as prone to wind knots, etc. I've used the line for 2 outings so far and everything has gone well. If things continue down this path, I'll be changing over more reels to Fireline.

Great line. I am using some 10 year old 30lb pink fireline on a couple of my rods and it has never let me down. After about 5 years I hooked the end of the line to another reel and reversed the line to bring the bottom never used line to the top of the new reel. I do this with all my braid lines. I may change it out this winter just because I think it might be getting weak but it has not failed. Iâ€;™;m not an everyday fisherman or every weekend for that matter but it has seen use every year.
Very strong line...

I got this to setup my trout and panfishing rod/reel setup. It is a lot stronger than I expected with a very light and thin. (I don't know if this matters, but the color makes it look amazing on the rod/reel :-) ) I really like this braid compared to the mono or fluo lines I used in the same tested weight. Two thumbs up.
ProsColor, strength, and light weight.

I love my fireline and Tackle Direct for the great prices! I donâ€;™;t fish, but I sure do create fantastic beading creations, and I know they are strong and will never fall apart as long as I use my Fireline.

Have been using this line for years....great breaking strength and wind knot resistant....good stuff.
Great but a lot of mullah

stuff is great but it is very expensive. User a backer of Mono to save yourself a ton of cash if you plan to spool this stuff.
ProsGood strong line.
Conswould rather use for freshwater than saltwater. Make 50- 8lb test please.

I use Berkley fire line for everything, from my freshwater set up to my saltwater surf setups. There's no better line in the industry in terms of casting and durability. It's smooth, it's flashy and the smoke black makes any reel look extra appealing!

I tried this line and wasn't very pleased with it at all. Definitely better lines out there.

one of the best lines i have ever used.

I was skeptical trying out a new line, I've never used a fused superline before and don't think I will be going to switch from braid now that I have. With very little use I've already got some fraying. Other than that it's ok.

Best line for jigging Lake Erie perch
November 2, 2014
2775 Lake Erie perch last year. my boat catching fish and the boats around us watching us, There is no stretch in this line, you can feel the bottom in most cases. I just purchased next years line for all my reels. can't wait for APRIL 2015!
Breaking strength much higher that spec'd
September 22, 2014
I've only tried two types of braid so limited experience with many types of line but I've logged a long season so far. Both fireline and power pro super slick 8 are exceptional lines. The breaking strength is very much underrated. Local shop said 30# breaks at 70#. I use 20# for surf fishing Newport. In retrospect I would use the 30# as I would prefer to bend hooks than lose my $20 needlefish. I also use 10# on my inshore rod. Which I've wrestled 42" stripers in on.
ProsIncredible sensitivity, this line combined with the right rod allow you to feel the subtle differences in bottom. I have had no birds nests with fireline. Incredible durability, I prefer the smaller fireline diameter as it minimizes sailing in the wind. Stuff casts a mile. I use a double uni when connecting my line to flouro leader and line to backing.
ConsCost. But it lasts quite a while. I use 20# mono as backing and fill my VS250 with about 180 yards of the 20# Fireline. When it wears out, I have the local shop remove the line, flip it attaching the worn end to the backing.
