Berkley: Trilene’s new XL Armor Coated
Though Berkley’s new Nanofil Uni-Filament Line has drawn much of the attention at ICAST this year, company spokesman Clay Norris says that Trilene’s new XL Armor Coated is equally worthy of attention. The line is a “co-extrusion”, with a harder, more abrasion-resistant exterior extruded over a soft, flexible interior filament. The result is a monofilament line that is 40 percent more abrasion resistant than conventional nylon mono, and 30 percent more flexible, says Norris. The line is available in clear or green colors, and in tests from 6 to 20. A 220-yard spool is $8.99 for up to 8-pound-test, $9.99 for higher tests.
