Berkley FireLine Product Review

The FireLine from Berkley is an affordable, durable, quality-made fishing line that gives you all the benefits of a braided line at a reduced cost than the more expensive premium brands.

Quality and Affordability is at the forefront of most fisherman’s minds when shopping for equipment. Typically, the more established and higher priced equipment would be more suitable for professionals who earn a living from fishing. In this way, it’s seen as an investment.

For the more casual fishermen or hobbyist, getting premium equipment isn’t always practical. In the Berkley Fireline, we have a line that is cheaper than most, giving casual anglers another good affordable option.

This line comes in several different test weights and two different colors. Which color you select will depend on your fishing style. Luckily, this line provides options for either style.

Some fishermen like to be able to see the line, and it’s advantageous for how they’re fishing. Others want the line to be as invisible as possible so as not to alert the fish to the presence of the line. This line is offered in bright neon and a dark color for a more camouflaged look.

The max test weight option on this line is 30 lbs. You can use this as a general fishing line for most species, but once you start getting to more substantial sized fish, this may not be the best option.
