Thorne Bros Spooling

9 posts in this topic

After I go get my new Curado today from Cabelas I am going to go to Thorne Bros tomorrow to get it spooled up with some line. Do you guys at Thorne spool off of bulk spools and charge by the yard or do I just buy a 150 or 300 yard spool and you spool it?

Thanks for the help.

They spool off of bulk spools and charge by the yard. If I remember right its one price for the mono backing and then another for the Tuf Line or whatever your having put on.

I was just looking around on the thorne bros HSOforum for the stealth florocarbon leaders but couldn't find them. Do they still stock them in the store? I will be making a run over there about 230 or 3 today to get all spooled up and I need a few of those leaders.

Thanks,

Ryan

I think they have them in the store, if not the Thorne fluoro leaders are a good leader too. 80 & 130 test, something like $4 a piece.

thorne makes their own leaders. they do not carry stealth. the difference between a stealth leader and the ones at thorne are zero beside the name. they both use the same snaps, the same flouro leader materials, and components. brett has been makin them there for a long time and they are put together very well.

Cool, thanks for the clarification!

I've only used the Thorne leaders so I'd never really looked to see what else is there! No need to, as the Thorne leaders are great.

if you decide to get them, be sure to grab the 130# ones. they will help you decide there too, but you dont wanna accidentally grab the 80# ones. i am still using a bunch of mine from three years ago. just needed to change the snaps. awesome leaders.

The Thorne fluoro leaders are crimped only where the Stealth ones are both crimped and tied. They're both excellent fluoro leaders and the only two that I would be willing to put on the end of my line. I've been using the Stealth ones for a couple years now with nothing but great things to say about them.

    • better late than never!!  so far it's not to late any way!
    • I'm curious about the GenieJar.  Looks like there is a 30oz and a 17oz version.  I wonder how it works in fairly cold weather.  The nice thing about styrofoam is that it insulates against the entire water mass freezing into a minnow-sicle.  I wonder if they recommend throwing it inside your jacket or something. 
    • Agreed. I am getting nervous about the state of out financial situation now, well, I guess getting MORE nervous. Toward the back end of the contract Parise's deal isn't so bad since it was front loaded, but the term is so long. IMO we cannot afford any more buyouts. Pominville is such a buzzkill. Koivu has really played great the last 1 plus this year. No, he isn't going to win many races for the puck, but as long as he isn't on the top line I am OK with that. Staal is doing a little better than I had hoped I guess. I was hoping just for solid play, but there have been a few games where he and Coyle we so strong on the puck the opposition couldn't get control of it.
    • Hey Star, I wouldn't leave the fan there. It's going to get really HOT and will melt ! Move it to the bottom of the cabinet just left of the gas valve and have it blowing up so it pushes the heat out the vents on the top half of the heater.
    • I agree with the backing for the fly line.  Never had any problems and the stuff seems to get better with age.
    • Best thing I've found is backing for fly line.  It has no memory and virtually no knots.  It's better situated for rattle wheels because of the physical size of the backing but I've not had any problems yet with my Frabil tip-ups.  Deepest water we fish in is only 30' with normal depth of around 12'.  Our local Runnings sells 50 yard segments for like $3 each in any color. 
    • The next year my Mom and Dad cooked the turkey in one of those white roasters and it was awesome.  So I told her that too.  Big time.  It was nice and juicy too.
    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy.
