As a convenience to our customers, we do offer a range of Fireline products for order from the products offered by Berkerly in conjunction with the BeadSmith. Our prices are MSRP mostly to cover the often almost silly cost of postage to ship - you might get a better deal looking in hunting and fishing business like Cabella's or Dick's Sporting Goods.

CAVEAT: Please do not ask us for help solving issues if you insist on using Fireline in braiding. Because our answer will be Friends don't let friends braid with Fireline.

Frankly at twice the price of SLON, we are hard put not to do our level best to talk you out fo the product EVEN if you find a REALLY good deal elsewhere - just something to think about
