Berkley FluoroShield: Fluorocarbon Meets Monofilament ICAST 2020

COLUMBIA, S.C. (July 14, 2020) — No one company knows more about the science behind fishing line than Berkley®. Decades of research, study and testing by Berkley scientists have produced some of the most trusted lines in fishing. Everything from Trilene to Vanish to the most recent introduction of Berkley x5 and x9 braid have been painstakingly tested to ensure they help anglers get more fish in the boat. The same goes for the newest line in the Berkley portfolio, FluoroShield™.

An addition to its impressive portfolio of innovative line offerings, Berkley FluoroShield™ is a Fluorocarbon infused nylon, co-polymer line that provides anglers with added abrasion resistance while still achieving an optimized casting distance on either spinning or baitcasting reels.

Berkley FluoroShield offers monofilament anglers another trusted line choice by combining the manageability of monofilament that many of them rely on with the abrasion resistance of fluorocarbon. Its refractive index is like that of fluorocarbon making it less visible to fish. Similar to monofilament, FluoroShield has a near neutral buoyancy, making it ideal for fishing spinnerbaits, bladed jigs, shallow crankbaits, soft swimbaits, swimming jigs, and buzzbaits.

Available in pound tests from four to 30, Berkley FluoroShield comes in both 300-yard filler spools and 3,000-yard bulk spools. For more information visit
