Monofilament Fishing Line For Spinning Reels
I’m getting my spinning reels set up for this fishing season, so I wanted to take some time and share with you what I’ve found to be the best
There are a number of reasons that people prefer monofilament over other types of fishing line. Sometimes it just comes down to a personal preference. Other times, there’s a more technical reason behind choosing mono line over fluorocarbon or even braided fishing line.
In this post I’m going to share with you what I’ve found to be the 5 best
So, let’s get to it!….
1. KastKing Premium
monofilament Fishing Line (Top Pick)
- Low Memory
- Abrasion resistant
- Low Absorption
The first on my list of best mono line is Kast King’s Premium
It’s a combination of it’s unique design, low visibility and high resistance to abrasion. And since it is designed to be used in freshwater and saltwater, it makes for a very versatile fishing line to have.
The mono line made by KastKings features Paralleled Roll Track technology which results in a better reel capacity.
The reason this is a good thing, is because mono fishing line is known for it’s larger diameter which means less line on the reel when compared to fluoro. But with KastKings Premium mono line, that’s no longer an issue.
2. Berkley Trilene Big Game
Monofilament Custom Spool
Berkley Trilene Big Game
Berkley’s Trilene Big Game mono line is highly resistant to both abrasion and shock which transfers into confidence on our end when out on the water.
As we all know, mono fishing line is known for stetching to some degree, but Berkley has dealt with this with its controlled stretch design. Less stretch in the line means more fighting power for us.
For the price that you can pick up a spool of Berkley Trilene Big Game mono line for, it’s not just affordable, but also just might be the best

4. Berkley Trilene XL Smooth Casting
Between the major brands of
Trilene XL has very little memory and doesn’t coil like other inexpensive brands of mono line. It loads easily onto the spinning reel spool and is smaller in diameter, which allows for more line on the spool.
Trilene XL casts exceptionally well and has reduced number of birds nest, regardless of what size line you’re using. It’s incredible pliable and durable and resistant to abrasions. You can easily tie knots with this line and be confident that the knots will hold.
The low memory in combination with it’s durability and pliability makes this one of the best mono fishing lines for spinning reels hands down.
