Anybody know of an online supplier of bigger spools than 220m? I`ve used quite some meters over the last months, and could really fancy buying some larger spools than the ones I get here in Norway... Think there was a thread about it a while ago, but did a search and read thru 20 pages of posts without finding it... So if somebody could help me out with a link to a supplier, I would be forever thankful :)

Does it have to be no. 24 ?How about 3000 ft of this for $160:

The Dive Gear Express exclusive Hi-Viz Line is better than the generic nylon line commonly used in diving applications because it is high tenacity braided Dupont Dacron®. Hi-Viz Dacron costs a bit more than generic nylon, but this abrasion resistant line has slightly negative bouyancy, won't twist or kink and has minimal stretch. Our Hi-Viz Dacron line is stronger than #36 nylon line, yet is slightly thinner than #24 nylon line, so you can load extra on the reel. White line is difficult to see in open water, but our Hi-Viz Dacron line stands out like neon, allowing easier line management with nearby divers.

Available in both orange and yellow colors, choose Hi-Viz Dacron Orange for best distance visibility or Hi-Viz Dacron Yellow for best low-light visibility. Our Hi-Viz Dacron line is available preloaded on Dive Rite blue safety and red primary reel spools so it's quick and easy to reconfigure your reel by simply exchanging spools. Also available in a bulk 3000-foot roll.

We are often asked 'What is the tested breaking strength?' Unfortunately there are several different types of synthetic polymers sold as nylon and no standards for the test methodologies, so it's impossible to compare published ratings from different sources. Our supplier tested both the Hi-Viz Dacron line and a widely used white nylon guideline found on reels with the same method at the same time. The results show both have several hundred pounds of breaking strength and the Hi-Viz line is stronger. Frankly, both are more than strong enough for diving purposes.


SideWinder Guideline Dive Reels by Dive Rite - Dive Gear Express

if you get an order together for over $500, they offer free international shipping.

We did this recently and it took about 2 weeks from order to delivery, USA to Saudi.

Cheers, John

It's used in nets, try somewhere that makes them, it's usually listed as seine twine. IIRC #24 is around 250lb test.
