    you can get a 500yd spool of power pro for 40-50 dollars and that should hold you i have a spool on one of my reels and its 4 years old now.

    Steal it is the only way to get it half price.
    I can get you the150, 300, 500 1500 yard spools what size and color? The bigger spools saves you soem $$ but not going to be half price.
    Thought about buying the 3000 yard spools and selling it sections that will fill a reel. But not sure it would sell good that way.
    If theres enough people that would buy it. I could add it and Spider Wire to the website. It would be drop shipped. But then agian I can sell it a little cheaper that way also.:cool2:

    That is what I like about it. I break off and have to replace it but not for it wearing out. Shoot what is on my main reel, has been on it 5 years.:cool2:

    I just purchased 65# phantom red Power pro in a 1500 yd spool for 98 bucks. Its cheaper than me buying the smaller spools. Now that i purchased it I think i should have gone with 80#. But I will try it out. SGT Shorey

    mono will never fish like a braid let alone power pro mono holds its form when coming off a reel and gets torn up on a catfish's mouth i use 80 pd. power pro with 60# andes mono leader... and by the way if you want it cheaper find a bait shop that spools it look for about 10 cents for 65# and 13 cents for 80# a yard
