Yep. All i use anymore for my spinning rigs. It is a little pricey but you'll like it. 10# test is all you'll need unless you fish super heavy cover. It's a dream to cast. No looping on the reel like mono.

Yes you can. Although designed specifically for spinning, works well on bait casting. Got one of my baitcasters spooled with the 15# Nanofil. If you read the real specs on it, the company says it's
not a true braid, but has all the properties of braid...........low stretch, high sensitivity, etc. The only drawback that I have found on Nanofil is that over time, and in direct sunlight, the high vis line(yellow)
had a tendency to fade a touch(over 1 year plus for me) but the line properties have remained consistent.

I just got some Power Pro Maxcuatro Braid to try this year.
I got it in 20lb test Yellow.
.007inch  .19MM so very small (25% smaller)and super strong for being 20lb test. Size of 4lb Mono and 12lb of other braids.
Gonna use it for my Basic Bass fishing. I put it on my Shimano Stradic Ci4+2500HGFB reel.
Should cast like a rocket.
I'll let you guys know how I like it.

I bought a spool of 6lb Nanofil in the Clear Mist color.
Gonna use it for Crappies with a 4-6lb Fluoro leader.
I have a Shimano Sedona 500FD and a Sienna 500FD reel that I will put the Nanofil line on.
I'll let you know what I think of this line.
I just got a Denali Pryme Dock 6 foot DR (1/64-1/4oz  lures  4-12lb Mono line) spinning rod that was made just for Crappie fishing. Nice rod.
I like to fish light for Crappies. Fun-Fun-Fun   catch & release

Hi jig Man

I did keep around 20 Crappies around 11-13 inches for my brother to eat.
I myself don't eat freshwater fish.
The small lakes and ponds here where I fish are not overly abundant with nice fish.
So I put them back to reproduce. I like fishing for FUN and relaxation.
I fish maybe 3 times a week weather permitting. Spring to Fall
Getting harder getting around anymore. Age is creeping up on me.  lol

I have to say that I like the 6lb Nanofil line for Crappies. I had no problems.
I tied on 5lb Sniper as a leader and they worked well together.
No problem throwing a 1/16oz jig.
