I have a chance to purchase a bulk spool of berkly wiplash #100 test
2500 yds "white" in color for $100 .I am not to sure about this color,I've always used #80 test powerpro "Green".What do you guys think.I was told that I could use a permanent marker to color the the last 6 or so feet! Is it a deal or what?
I would probably buy it. The stuff doesnt go bad and I really like
Whiplash in the 100#. 80# is a little on the light side for Whiplash. I would say the that 100# whiplash is about equal to
I wouldnt even worry about the color. Most of tuff line is white and
I always see Bob Mehisokomer nailing 50 inchers on tv with that stuff.
Just think of the money you will probably be saving in the long run.
My 2 cents...
Buy it, you will not regret it! Great line and that is a smashing deal

White may be better in color than green because fish look up and not down. I am convinced that fish can see green line much better than white line - especially in clear water. The TUF line with the dark specs may be the best color. Green line is more camoflauged to people, but then we're looking down into the water with the water or bottom as a backdrop.
That said, I use 100 Whiplash and it is a great line. If you don't want it, I'd gladly buy it. I'd be set for years with 2500 yards.:)

Hey Herb B I liked what you said about the Berkley wiplash! The guy has a couple more bulk spools of 100# and 150#.I asked him if I could put phone number on the board in case you wanted some.He said it was ok and he could ship to anywhere!

Thanks a lot Wayne.
I'm going to have to see if I can talk the wife into it. Unfortunately, she's a little touchy right now after my trips to the Muskie Expo and Thorne Bros. :)

I still have two giant spools of the stuff left from last seasons gift giving time.
Bonnie and the hounds must have talked to Santa before Christmas past as he gave me the GREEN #80 LB and #100 LB in 2500 yards spools in my BIG stocking that hung over the fire place with such care.
Tried it in 2002, liked it, but I really favor no one line.
As for coloring the last six feet.
Most will likely say it don't mean crap!
Even so I been doing it a long time anyway, but I use RED marker?
It really stands out to my eye.
In the mixed color waters we fish, they sometimes get real dark or maroon to brown in color mid to late in the season.
Having the line Marked in a different color a FULL rods length just lets me know how deep a fish is boat side if she is really green and we can not get our peeps on her.
I like RED only because I like RED!
But if this might help my fishing any and a fish hates or likes any color I figure it gots to be RED!
Watch your knots.
Keep on Rock'en!
