{Collins} Re: KWM-2 dial cord?



Roy, et al............ Sevalon can be ordered at Cabela's website... the 27# 
test stainless steel is available at the Cabela's for $6.39 for a 100 ft. 
roll, in either black or clear nylon covering.

If all else fails, I have a few 27# test, 30ft. rolls available.

 Go to www.cabelas.com and do a search for Sevalon and if 27# is not 
satisfactory, they have all the other usual sizes listed.
