Go-to line?
« on: Nov 30, 2014, 04:32 PM »
Wondering what those of you who fish in the 'real' cold areas of Canada use for lines?

I use Tuf-Line Duracast coated braid on most of my reels.

Drifter, are you finding that line anywhere in Canada now? A couple years ago, I bought some from eTackle on your recommendation. They appear to be out of business now, and I've found no other source here. Tuf-Line never answered my inquiry for dealers and their website is of no assistance.

Phil @ Etackle is having some health issues which is why you can't get in touch with him.
I bought a bunch off Phil and have no need to buy any more as of yet.
I think I still have at least 3 or 4 boxes of it.

Might have to do an online search and order off the inter webs.
;)

None available online that I could find. All are out of stock. May have to find some of their SuperCast, as it seems similar. May even be the same line.
Finally found some DuraCast Ice, at Pokey's in Regina, but 6# and 10# only in stock.

I too followed Drifter's recommendation so I'd appreciate it if you'd post your impressions of what ever line you end up with in comparison to the TufLine Duracast. My local outlet closed last year. Thanks in advance.
