I have been using berkly big game for years. I usually buy it in big bulk spools from bass pro, but I decided to get some from Walmart. I bought 4 spools of 25-lb test, and went to spool up some reels. The line was so stiff you could actually bend it and break the line, on all 4 spools. This line had to be setting on the shelf, or in a back room for years..I have bought line from Walmart before with no problems.
