    Has anyone tried the new Berkley Fireline Braid yet? If so, what you think of it?

    I have run this braid for 3 years. It floats, so it helps me keep track of the
    bobbers I use. It has little stretch to it so tightlining is a little tighter and I
    can use heavier sinkers to post the bait on river bottoms. I have liked its
    good qualities and put up with the floating line because I can compensate
    for it when it becomes an issue. With a heavy mono leader there is enough
    stretch so if a big cat grabs the bait and makes a short run I can take up
    the slack and if I feel the cat moving a bit, I can flick back the rod tip and
    drive the Tru-Turn hook into the corner of his mouth with little trouble. All
    in all, it is a dependable line that has served me well and brought in what
    fish I have managed to hook. Now I need to find a few more fish to hook!
