I need to replace the line on 3 down riggers. I like the line John puts on but that's 2 trips to town. Where can I order a bulk spool?

John's Cheaper line is made there as well. Just saying. Stick to Power pro than and either John's or Cabela's has the name brand stuff. or buy the Scotty's braid.

Is that what John is spooling on? If so that's good enough......

No he has something that is almost as cheap. It is not a name brand. I have a spool of it in the garage. Online he lists "Courtland" Made in America 200lb Braid 600yards for $99.50

I bought some off ebay that was made in china, it took forever to get here ( shipped via ship, not air ) and it was more like Dacron than Braid....it was useless for what I wanted.

Order the Blue #200 Jerry Brown from Melton and be done. It's $139 delivered for 600 Yards.
And they support BloodyDecks.

I use the Cortland braid from John's. He sells the bulk spools at the store for 99$. Been running it for several years with zero complaints.

X2 on the Jerry Brown. I've been using Jerry Brown 200lb Non Hollow Hi Vis Yellow for the last three years. Awesome braid. Never had an issue or break off.
