Re: Need help finding colored backing

Dan, it is also a 1000 yd spool, and I can't find any shorter from the same seller, or any seller for that fact. Jim Teeny doesn't accept paypal.

Need help finding colored backing

I'm looking for some bright blue backing, I purchased some a while back online but I can't seem to remember where I got it. 20# or 30# doesn't really matter.
