    Looking for feedback on the Berkley Big Game line in the solar green color. I'm guessing this line will be easy to see at night especially with a florescent light on in the boat. Anyone tried it yet?

    i used big game solar green for a many years. its a very good line. im trying out the big game hi-test in solar green this year, so far i like it better than the regular big game.

    I've used it for the last couple of years. It works great and really lights up with a blacklight.

    I'd like to try this stuff for night fishing this summer. How does it cast? Do you guys use it on a bait caster? What pound test do you use and how much of it can you put on lets say an abu 6500?

    I use it on baitcasters. Tidewater 10L reels. I use 25# test in the summer and spool up with 30# in the winter. My son does the winter fishing now due to my old age and the way cold weather affects me, but I still get out there and catch some good eaters in the summer. Good visibility in the daylight and lights up good under a blacklight too. I'm using the 10# solar on my crappie poles now.

    Thanks for the input gentlemen! I was planning on ordering some from Catfish Connection and thought I'd ask for some feedback before placing my order. Sounds like it's a winner!

    Big George and I did a line test with like 6 different fishing lines about a year ago, when we did it Berkley Big Gave fishing line was the only one that held up to the test it called for on the fishing line . Most of them that was rated at 40# test line broke lets say at 25 to 30# , so I am sold on Berkley Big Game, and all I use is the Solar Green line. and 40# test. But hey thats me you may like something else better.

    DH, do you think that you could post your results if you still have them? Thats something that I would like to see. I was thinking about doing something similar this summer.
