I've fished for 6-7 years now. The only Orvis tippet I know are the Super Strong (SS), Mirage, and the new Abrasion Resistant (AR).

This stuff is at least a few years old, and that isn't good for a nylon momofilament. Just for the peace of mind I like having newer matierial on my line. I'd pass if it were me.

I use that exact tippet. I believe I know the site in which you saw it because I bought it from the same place.

I've never had any problems with it.

I could be wrong but..........if the material has been stored in a cool place and protected from UV radiation it should be good for quite a while. I've never heard of Green Mtn. tippet and that line of rods and such were retired by Orvis a while back (years) and replaced I think by the ClearWater line. If Axle is using it without a hitch then trying a couple spools may not be a bad thing.

IF...you get a powdery like film on your fingers, the tippet isn't good to use. As with any monofilament line. As far as the brand, that's personal preference. Me? I like ultragreen maxima.

The Green Mountain was their lower end stuff and they sold it at the time when they had a Green Mountain version (basic) of most everything
Green Mountain waders, Green mountain vest, Green Mountain rods ..etc.
I don't know how it compairs, but I have some of the SuperStrong material that's 20 years old and still good
