Default Factory Seconds?

Hello all!

I am looking for a line for a 3 wt reel I'm going to be putting on a Redington RS3, 8 foot. I am a broke joke of a college student but my need to catch fish sometimes supersedes my need to buy books. While I can forgo the books, I still need to eat and I am getting real sick of ramen. It hurts me to look at prices of the lines out there these days, so I am looking for a cheaper, still suitable alternative. Any help would be awesome!

Scott

Nowadaze, many (most?) of the lines that I use are $10 factory seconds.
I have 7-8 of them. They work just fine and I've never had an issue.

As the shop where I get them is not a sponsor here, anyone who wants the link can PM me.

I've never had luck with factory seconds... They always have flaws that cannot be ignored... At least all the ones I've gotten... Aquanova makes really cheap lines that are good quality

I am sorry, but I don't agree with this policy and have seen it in a thread or two, where the mods have cut out a link.

I understand you don't want spam, but if someone post the name of a shop that isn't a sponsor here, it shouldn't be edited. This is a small industry and all of the shops are just trying to survive. Why can I say Orvis, Scott, Sage, Rio, etc., but I can't say fortackle dot com? Seems a little disingenuous.

Nobody cut the link, I decided on my own not to include it.
If that gets your nose bent out of shape. Tough ****.

I never said it was cut from this thread. You should learn to read.
