    Default Where can I find 2 lb test line?

    Guys in my quest for gills I have started throwing some 1/64 oz jig heads and would like to try them on some 2 lb test line. Does anyone know of anywhere that has 2 lb test line in the Decatur Huntsville area? I just don't seem to be getting enough distance out of the 1/64 on 4 lb test.

    Thanks.

    Of all places, I found it at Wallmart recently. Seems to cast and spool OK so far.
    I typically use 6# because of Brother Bass and snags but wanted one lighter rig too.

    2 & 3# lines are starting to really catch on, SOS, Trilene, Ect. - the better stores are starting to carry it.

    Trilene XL 2#

    Stren Crappie Mono 2# (not regular Stren)

    I use ‘em both.

    Yup, like others have said 2# SOS is carried in local Walmart now. I like it but would like to try the trilene sometime.

    I've been using 4 pound Stren Magnathin on two of my spincast reels (Zebco Omega Pro). I can cast a 1/64oz jig or spinner a mile and it seems as strong as the 6 pound that I was using. I spent a good bit of last summer working a 1/64 jig bottom bouncing in 10 to 12 feet of water. I think one of the keys is when I get home I strip off my line to remove twist, then spray with reel magic.
