Grundens/Gage Weather Watch line is light weight to the point of being pack-able. It is kind of like ripstop nylon with a waterproof membrane on the inside. It isn't breathable, though.

That's interesting and a bit disturbing. I've had excellent luck with both parts and warranty service from Okuma's US service center in Ontario (California). Were your availability issues recent?

Game meat will keep for many years in two layers of cling-wrap followed by one layer of butcher paper. I mean years. This only really works if you can get all the air out with the first layer, so...

I've spliced 30# fluoro into Toro Tamer 16 strand 30# hollow, if that is any help to you. 40# would work just as well.

I haven't spliced solid braid into hollow, though.
