    I haven't used the super 8. Frequently use regular power pro though. The nanofil frays easier than standard braid in my opinion.

    How do you like that Pfleuger Arbor reel? I was looking at them. Never bought it though.

    I didn't have any problems with the nanofil fraying or tangling but I did have trouble with the knots.I have had no problems with the regular Power Pro. Can you use the same knots with the super 8?I haven't bought the arbor reel yet was going to buy the reel and line at the same time.

    They are both good lines but I prefer the Nanofil. The Super 8 is really limp, almost too limp for my liking. I had problems with it knotting up on the spool and the cast, especially when it was windy. It also depends on what pound line you are planning on getting. The Super 8 is more to my liking once you get over 30#. I use 6 or 8 lb Nanofil on most of my freshwater spinning outfits. My surf gear has 30 or 40 lb Super 8. As far as knots with the Nanofil, use a double palomar and you won't have any issues.

    I've herd more negative then good up till reading this about Nanofil.  The only plus I knew was you could cast a mile, from my understanding when it came out you would have to upsize the break strength a few # and that it would fray a lot easier then other super/fused lines.  I have some Super 8 in the #10 on a finesse setup and itching to try it but no real hint of it.   One of the guys at Cabela's even said the same thing that the reviews have said and that he thought it was awesome if you're looking to throw a mile and for super low stretch but it's just not there where it needs to be.

    How do you like that Pfleuger Arbor reel? I was looking at them. Never bought it though.

     
    I bought the Pfleuger arbor 7430 last spring. Used it the next day , all day and liked it so much I went back to Fisherie and bought another one the very next day. I just recently bought 2 more and now I have one for each pole I use regularly. I have one on my noodle rod for steelhead , one on my pitching rod when I use worms,grubs and tube jigs , one one my top water rod , and one one a general rod that is used with plugs,spinnerbaits,spoons,and the like.
     
      All are spooled up with 15lb power pro , 2 with green and 2 with high vis yellow.  The reel will run you around $80.00 and it comes with an extra spool. So I essentially have 4 reels and 8 spools now.
     
    I used to have problems with wind knots on a regular reel and spool. May just be the way I cast or whatever but I have not had one wind knot since buying these reels. I would recommend them to anyone. You can put some real muscle into your cast and the line peels off very smoothly without and foulups.

    I like nanofill for trolling actually the 15 pound light green is as good as 8 pound mono helps out a lot
