Original Spiderwire

7 posts in this topic

Anyone hearing anything about Original Spiderwire going away? Cabela's has it in the clearance area, Gander Mt has very little and it was not in the Basspro master catalog?

I heard they were bought out by another company but that's all I know... Hopefully it's going to still be available?

I tried it on one of my reels last year and it seemed to tangle up a lot for me. Especially when casting hard. I'm not the type that gets a lot of tangles either. I think it was the teflon coating. And when it did tangle (which was at least once per outing) it knotted up really bad and usually required it to be cut. I won't be using it again.

Original Spiderwire doesn't have teflon coating which

is one of the reason bird's nest are picked out so easily.

They also make Stealth which is teflon coated maybe that's

the one you had problems with? Berkley bought them a few years back. I've asked around and no one seems to know anything about it?

      model name / number: Mako Upgraded to an electric auger and selling my old one. Runs great and has been well taken care of. Starts on 2-3 pulls every time. I have the extension for it as well as a new set of blades that I bought but haven't needed to change yet. I also have a cabelas auger bag that it fits in.

      I scored a set of Striker Hardwaters for 25% off   bibs+coat. I fish early ice alone, decided to pull the trigger on a warm suit that can float if I end up breaking thru.  That crowd was insane. Happy to see the big turnout. All of the TV dudes were roaming around too, talking with ppl and taking pics. Had a great time and I'm happy to see how big the ice fishing community is getting. Just stay away from my holes!!!     jk. Looks like we could be gaining up to an inch of ice/day in metro lakes if this forecast holds.
