    Default Stren Crappie Line Sources

    Hi all. I have pretty much settled on Stren Crappie as my go to mono line. Hi Viz is a must, and in 2 and 4 lb test it has been working real well. I need to get some new spools for replenishment and I have noticed that no one seems to have much of anything in stock. Cabelas doesn’t even list it. Anyone hear a rumor that the line is being discontinued, or maybe this is just a case where vendors haven’t gotten in their spring supplies. I’m looking for a one stop source for the above weights, and maybe a 6 lb as well. Any ideas for suppliers, my local shop doesn’t carry it.
    Thanks,
    Bob

    Bob,
    Amazon lists 2 and 6lb. Stren Crappie Hi vis Gold as in stock.
    Fish USA lists 4lb. Stren Original Hi vis Gold as in stock.
    Hope this helps.

    Thanks, I did see the above. I was hoping for one stop for everything. I’m hoping vendors are waiting until February to get in their merchandise. It is a popular line and I wouldn’t think was being discontinued. Even pure fishing only has 4 lb listed. I never tried Stren original in gold so don’t know how it handles, softness, etc.

    I’ve always found my stren at bait shops or even Walmart. I’ll buy it wherever I get the opportunity to. If I have to use two places, I use them.

    Stren Crappie is not easy to find. My local Walmart hasn’t stocked it in almost three years. Same goes for Cabela’s.

    Where ever you find it make sure it’s fresh or you want be happy I have purchased several name brand lines that apparently set on a shelf for to long because it had lost its strength so in the garbage they went . Made me very dislike the product and it was simply because it was old line .

    Good point, and that’s why it’s sometimes better to wait closer to spring hoping the stock is fresher.

    I know you asked about Stren, but here is a new product coming out soon. I have been satisfied with this company's lines. If it doesn't come in to stock until the 21st, at least it will be fresh. 330yd of 4# for $10.59. May be worth a try. Created for your need to see it.
