    I can’t find any 60lb thru 100 lb Daiwa J braid or PowerPro Super 8 Slick in 300 yard/meter spools in white or hi vis yellow on the internet. Both eight thread weave. Everyone listed on the web is sold out! Any local tackle store in Orange County have any?

    If that's what you want to call it
    Not shops in OC but I would try Island in Carson or possibly Kens custom reel in Oceanside.
    Did you try the Longfin or Melton etc.?

    There's a lot of tackle shortages going around. My guess the covaid shut down is showing the effects, It's not just fishing tackle. When you do get your hands on some of the tackle/Etc. It seems the price is 20-50% higher prior to the Covaid shut down! Hopefully when the product gets back in stock, We will see the prices come back to close to normal before the Covaid shut down?

    TackleDirect has 2 spools of Daiwa J Braid in stock of 3,000 meters/100# white 8-ply. $290 each.

    TackleDirect has lots of 300 yard spool options for PowerPro SuperSlick V2, 50#, 65# and 80#/different colors.

    If you can't find the line you need locally and place an order to TackleDirect, PM me first, I have a $15 off coupon code I will send you (at least covers your sales tax).

    BTW I am not affiliated in any way with TD, just use them sometimes because their prices are fair and their service/selection are usually good.
