Waxy, the super slick cast significant better than regular pp?
Crank casting 4 lb mono diameter is my target use. For pp that's 15 lb test.

I called berkley - 5/3 year shelf life they say. I love the casting distance , but I'll be switching to something else due to all the cons with nano.

I wonder what suffix says on the shelf life - while I'm on a quest I may call them.

The Super Slick casts WAYYYY better than standard Power Pro.

It's far more limp and it's smooth, not cable like, there's no "singing" through the guides. Casting distances are excellent.

It lasts pretty much forever too. It's surprisingly abrasion resistant and breaks well above it rated strength, knot strength is the best I've tried. I'm on year 2 or 3 with several reels, and will get another year or two out of them by just going front to back with the spools. I really like the neon yellow color, and unlike the Fireline, the color actually lasts.

I'm completely sold on it.

I just setup a new rod with the suffix nano braid. Only used it a few times but so far I like it.
