Berkley Vanish has become the top-selling mainline fluorocarbon in the U.S. and Canada. Berkley has been continuously improving the Vanish formula since it was introduced 15 years ago. Easy casting Berkley Vanish is one of the great values in 100% fluorocarbon line.
Remains clear underwater - 100% fluorocarbon refracts light similar to water
Sinks underwater - more sensitive and a more direct profile from rod tip to lure
Superior Wet Strength - Non-absorbing fluorocarbon maintains strength and abrasion resistance underwater
Flexible - Most fluorocarbons are stiff, Vanish is more flexible
Years ago I was using Stren flouro for stocked trout fishing, shad and sometimes bass (from bank) however decided to tried Berkley Vanish and I got better results, mostly in terms of abrasion resistance and knot strength. I always keep a spool of 8lb and 10lb in my tackle box.
ProsGood abrasion resistance, fair price

Not sure if it's because of my 500 size spool but it has a lot of memory but manageable. I was looking for some trout line in the 4lb weight while I was getting into trouting and this line suited my needs for stream fishing
My go to line.

This is the only brand i use for leader. Its my go to for yellow tailing. Just like the name says, this stuff vanishes into the water. not to mention you get 250 yrds of Fluoro for a great price. Tight Lines!
ProsWorks great on spooky fish

I spoiled 4 reels up, wasnÃ¢â‚;¬â"¢t on for more than a week when I hit the first tournament. Line has TERRIBLE memory. Spend the extra money and buy better quality line.

Using as leader material.. it is good value for the money.. I think it is little weaker than the lbs described..
