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?

Could be turning over inventory for new packaging.

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?

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
