I use Berkley big game for all my salmon and stealhead reels 20# main line for salmon with 25 or 30# leaders 12# test for steelhead great strong line well worth the money been buying it for 15 years wouldn't change a thing and made in the usa
I caught 5 big Yellowtail with no issue using this Berkley mono line. Highly recommended product.
Trilene Big Game fishing line is the best. This line will meet all your expectations. I have used this line in Canada for years. Good knot strength and handles the big ones! You won't be disappointed.
Berkley has the best products when it comes to fishing! I've never had issues with this line snapping. I would get snagged on logs and would start yanking it out in hopes of getting it out. More often than not, I do actually get free from snags without the line snapping! I used Stren for a while, but it's just not as tough and durable as Berkley. Get yourself some of this great quality fishing line! The only way it's going to snap is if you cut the line! Highly recommend this line!
Work really good very strong.
This is my go-to line for almost all of my rigs. I mainly fish for catfish, so those set-ups are anywhere from 12-20lb test lines. Berkley Big Game is excellent in these applications. It is very tough, abrasion resistant, ties good knots and is SUPER strong for the line diameter. Fresh line does have some memory to it (somewhat stiff), but it wears in pretty quickly and after that it is perfect.
I do use braid for specific applications like deep-water jigging or on my Muskie rods, but for almost everything else it is Big Game. I have used almost every brand of line out there, and for the performance and the cost you can't beat this line!
I have been using this line for many years and have been happy with it , Why change huh?
Berkley big game is the best mono-filament they make. I have used this product for years
This is a great line at a great price.
Berkley makes great fishing line and this is no exception. Well priced, great knot strength and castability. I mainly striper fish and I wouldn't use any other line for my line.
Bought this line online and a couple days later I received the package.
I bought the 10 lb. line, but if I knew it was this strong I would have gotten the 8 lb. test instead. I tied this line to a 10 lb. dumbbell and it had no problem lifting it. I then tied it to a 20 lb. dumbbell and slowly lifted it and this 10 lb. test lifted the 20 lb. dumbbell no problem. I will buy the 8 lb. test within the next couple weeks.
I purchased the green color and it looks very nice, I would recommend that color.
I've Ben using this line for years now and has never ceased to amaze me! It is as good if not better than most monos out there. The best thing about it is the affordable price, and you get a ton of line. The lines strength is super, 12# holds up as well as my 20lb spider wire. I will always be using this line!
I always use Berkley Trilene. It has never failed to perform under any condition. Nothing beats Berkley when going after the biggest Shovelheads.
After overhearing three guys express their total displeasure with Big Game (BG) line (while spooling on their spinning reels), I decided to write this review based on my own personal experience. Their primary complaints related to BG having ‘terrible’ memory and one of them even said that he’d loss many nice fish due to BG breakage. First, I have always used the correct BG line pound test rating for the fishing conditions at hand. I’ve used various BG lines exclusively for both salt and fresh water for many, many years and I am totally convinced that it is certainly one of the most economically-minded, best performing monofilament lines on the market today. BG truly shines when compared to some of the more exotic saltwater-specific monofilaments on the market. Next, I’ve never experienced a single problem with BG—no premature breakage, no memory problems, no nothing--it simply works. The line is extremely tough and reliable (when used correctly). Finally, I’m a decent person and always try to share information with other people who love the sport of fishing as I do. So, to the guys mentioned in the opening of this review: 1) Do not make claims that products are inferior or no good without first learning about the sport and the equipment used, 2) Never attempt to spool light duty reels with 20-25 pound test line, and 3), If the fish you are pursuing breaks 20 pound test BG, I say leave them alone. They will never be caught on a rod and reel.
i've used berkley big game for a number of years and have almost never broken this line i use 20# for flipping and have pulled my boat when i snagged up.15# is equilvent to most 20# lines. try it you will be amazed
I always use either this or the Trilene XL when I use monofilament line. The Big game is not as soft and flexible as the XL. The big game stands up to bottom fishing better than any other monofilament line I have tried.
I have been using Berkley Big Game line for several years chasing catfish on the Susquehanna River in southern PA. Spooled up with 20# line, losing a fish due to line breakage isn't even a concern anymore. Even the seemingly most impossible snags will bust loose without breaking the line. In fact, getting "un-snagged" can be really difficult since this line is so hard to break! The abrasion resistance is outstanding, which is a must in rocky environments. The line is supple, easy to work with, has no memory, and knots stay tight and will not slip out. Pretty much the best of all worlds. Absolutely excellent performance and value. 100% recommended. In fact, toss everything else and re-spool ALL of your reels with this stuff!
I have been using this line for the past couple years and has neve failed me... Only lie that I trust now because of my catchs
We've been using Berkley Big-Game 20 pound solar collector for more than a decade. It's the only line we use for king salmon on the ocean. It's strong, durable and the bright color helps us sort who is over and who is under on multiple hookups. It's excellent line.
I've been using Trilene Big Game for many years. This is a good strong line.
