New stuff - Super Stren and Coleman

After the last trip, lots of things to replenish. Just spooled a new line for my D5. Getting to like braid more and more for its sensitivity. Had wanted to get fireline for 14lb. But on second thots, would like to have a set for 20lbs, just to have some options. I had been using my D5 more for bottom fishing, so 20lbs should be more suitable. Ended up got quite an expensive line with Stren Super Braid as Joe Tackle didn't have 300yd of 14lbs in Green.

From the website: "A superline that has it all! Introducing New Stren Super Braid with Advanced Microbond Technology. This remarkable line offers all the super line qualities that fishermen demand - like superior strength and sensitivity, plus several important characteristics that most other braids can't match. Stren Super Braid features unmatched handling and casting performance. The line resists fraying and fading; knots cinch down tight. The result is a line that performs beautifully, casts effortlessly, and maintains its roundness and extraordinary strength longer."

At $32 for a was downright expensive. But I liked the flouro orange color line. And felt very flexi too...unlike a 20lb fireline. Completing my color collection :P

Also finally got a decent sized Icebox. I had already outgrown the small puny one that I used to tag along. This is a Coleman 50Qt icebox with wheels, and a little tap to drain the water out. Was on offer at Carefoure for $69.90.
