 >  > Berkley Trilene Transoptic Monofilament Lines

Berkley Trilene Transoptic Monofilament Line is the first and only nylon monofilament fishing line to physically change color! It’s the line-watchers line. You see the line, the fish don't!

Trilene Transoptic features a proprietary transition technology which is activated by UV light. Transoptic changes from clear to gold in sunlight and overcast conditions. UV light begins to filter out the farther down the water column it goes, causing this line to return to its clear color after a few feet of water depth. This color changing line is the perfect answer for the angler in search of a hi-vis line that won't spook fish.

The following pictures show Trilene Transoptic on spinning reel spool. The clear color picture was taken just after the spool was filled indoors. The gold color picture was taken after 25 seconds of exposure to sunlight.

Berkley Trilene Transoptic Monofilament Line has the durability and abrasion resistance of Trilene XT and the smooth casting qualities of Trilene XL. Its high performance shock strength holds strong under hard hooksets, yet relaxes on the spools of spinning and casting reels.

We stock Berkley Trilene Transoptic in Clear/Gold in 6 to 25 pound tests. All spools are 220 yard.

Line diameters can be seen under the "Specifications" tab above.

About Me:

On each of my tournaments that I win, I always look for that one reason that won it. On my last winning tournament it went without debate that the Transoptic was the victory reason. With the correct heavy fish argument plan, the Transoptic just won't break, snap, split, crack... nothing!!!. If you're a pro-angler or professional fisherman, you'll fully acknowledge how to handle a huge and heavy fish with a titanic fight which at times you'll wish you were fighting a human... not a fish!. It's like having 2 anglers retrieving the fish, you and Berkley Trilene against the fish... you just can't miss with Berkley Trilene's Transoptic Mono Line!. Not including the other numerous qualities that the Transoptic obtains, this line is as well surpurb for crankbaits and plugs. The only one that disagrees with me on this is the 72lb, 9oz Gar that won me grand prize in my last Gar tournament in 2009. By my using the Transoptic in my next 2011 Tarpon tournament, this one's in the bag, and that my friends... ain't no ghost story!!!. As many Berkley products that I've used in my 49 years of fishing, and I'm 54 years in vintage... you have my word that Berkley Trilene stands behind each of their items. Happy Fishing!!!

Pros: Strong, Looks Realistic, Easy To Handle, Easy To Store, Irresistible to Fish, Good For Variety Of Fish, An extremely long cast

Cons: I haven't any

Best Uses: Fighting Heavy Fish, Jigging, Deep Water, Fresh Water, Trolling, Ice Fishing, Salt Water, Shore Casting

About Me:

I like the line but it is not a high visability line. If you want a good line with visability I recomend Berkley FireLine Tracer Braid. It is very strong, light, and has alternating high and low visability. Once you use it you will not want anything but this line.

Pros: Good For Variety Of Fish, Strong, Easy To Store, Easy To Handle

Cons: none

Best Uses: Shore Casting, Fresh Water

I have been looking for a line that is hard to see and limp. Salmon are hard to get hooked. This will be the first time I have used Berkly Transoptic Mono, but living in Alaska with a foot of snow and 20 below, I will have to wait until spring to give you an intelligent opinion of this product. I hope it is as good for my salmon fishing as your ads. I will attempt to get back to you come June. Thanks. Jim Marsh..
