    I called around at couple tackle shops and seems like each one has limited selection on the lines they carry. I like the depth finder stuff but no one carries them locally.

    If I get the line online, will the shops spool it for me for a fee or will is that rude to ask?

    $5 per reel for your own line. Most every shop in SoCal carries Daiwa JBraid which is one of the best depth marking lines being made, but if you can’t find it asking the tacklesbop of your choice to order it is the way to go. Not only will you get exactly what you want but you’ll build a relationship with that shop for spooling in the future

    it seems to me that a lot of tackle shops invested in big spools of Power Pro and suffix and all the P lines and now refuse to spend more money on spools of Maxcuatro and Super Slick 8 especially any blue color braids.

    Squidco San Diego has installed my brought-in braid line for a nominal fee several times - even re-spooled it on the same reel to tighten it all up

    a few days ago they spooled my EX30/2 with white PowerPro solid (100#) with and marked off 400ft in 25ft increments with black Sharpie (no extra charge)

    if a shop employee got rude for asking a fair question i would find another shop, can't blame a person for asking

    the two multicolored depth-type lines I know of are:
    • J Braid Multi-color
    • Power Pro Depth-Hunter Metered Line
    I had to by a spool of the MC PP (below pic) because I could find no one local with it in stock - it changes color every 25 ft to help you mark depth
