    I paid $0.78 per foot for 7/64 the other day at West Marine. Not the best unless you need it fast and can't wait for it to come in the mail.

    1/8" @ .26 here

    7/64 @ .26 here

    7/64" @ .34 here

    Plus shipping I'm sure...
    Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming "WOO-HOO, what a ride!!"

    Redden Marine has the best prices on Amsteel Blue: 7/64 @16 cents/ft

    If you call them with a small quantity order, they will only charge you actual postage. I believe the 7/64's would make a good bear bag line.

    Was going to order a bit just now from Redden Marine. Shipping does seem to be a bit expensive, $8.88 for 100'. I think I might give them a call before ordering.

    Agreed. Shipping is ridiculous for what it weighs. Everywhere I've looked to order it the shipping is only a dollar or two less than the cost of the Amsteel.

    I wonder if anyone here lives close to Redden Marine (or a store that sells it for a similar price)... maybe we could get a group buy going.

    If you call them during business hours and give them a card number they will only charge you actual postage. Remember they primarily sell to commercial fishermen and industrial concerns.

    Shippng price

    I can confirm that. I just ordered 100' Shipping total was under $4 to Utah. Price for 100' was $16. My total was just under $20 for 100'.

    Just did some field tests while family camping last week in Zions NP. Held very well. If it gets wet the blue dye does begin to wash out and will get over your hands and clothes if you are not careful.

    I also went with the 7/64 instead of the 1/8.
