    Where can I buy line in the UK, dont need a spool

    Hi all, anyone know where I can buy just a few meters of line for tying things onto boltsnaps ? Ive had a look online, and asked in my dive shop but they only sell complete spools/reels of the stuff for about 15 - 20. Just need a few meters of line, worth just penny's really. I use my club reels when im diving, hence why I don't have my own that I can relinquish some line from. Also I want some in black colour

    B&Q, Lidl, Aldi, choose your poison!


    If you are worried about 15 for a spool though, I think you might have taken up the wrong hobby!!
    Rememeber anything you read on the internet was probably written by some guy sitting at home in his underpants! Including this !!

    I needed some in a hurry and got some blind cord at Homebase - 30M for 5 and it came on a spool.

    Im not worried about spending 15, I would spend that on a kebab. My point is that string can be very expensive if you don't shop around, hence the question.

    Fifteen quid for a kebab?! They rob you blind down in London - I got one in Castleford a couple of weeks ago, just under a fiver for a large donner with all the trimmings. Best of all they're still serving when you roll out of the next door pub's lock-in at 3am in the morning.
