    It is just the color that is easier to see day are night. As for how it works a lot of guys use it and I do not remember seeing any complaints.

    Jayson, I use the High Vis Green as well as the neon blue Berkley Big Game. I like it alot better than the darker green, it's alot easier to see and keep track of. I fish eight rods - I spool 4 with the hi vis green and 4 with the neon blue. When I set up I alternate the colors in the rod holders and it helps me determine at a glance which lines I need to take in when fighting a fish to avoid having him cross me up.

    Bottom line - good line, it's all I use.

    BTW, I'm originally from Illinois, just across the border from T.H. west on I70. Joined the Navy in 89, looking forward to moving back to the midwest (Gods Country) when I retire.

    The neon blue isn't florescent. Berkley calls it Electric Blue...looking at a spool. Its good for daytime fishing where you run more than one line. I use the solar green, the blue, clear, and the photo chromatic (its pinkish). Helps me remember which line is which and also with drift fishing.

    I use the solar green with a blacklight and it shows up decent. Not as well as true flourescent though. But I was looking for another color than green. What about that photo color, you ever seen what that looks like under a blacklight?

    I"ve never put it under a black light or used it yet for night fishing. I can say that the solar green is the best of the Big Games for bank fishing at night, shows up real well in the head lamp.
