Doesn’t sound that cheap for just 150yds. Depending what line weight you are after, it may be advantageous to shop on TradeMe. For freshwater a lot are using about 15 to 20lb and as it is so fine they are needing to either buy 300 to 500m spools and one shot it, or wind on a backing line then top shot it at a shorter length. Anything less than 15lb will and does look finer than Mum’s cotton and a real headache if it tangles or if it rubs against your cold fingers….OUCH! Take some bandages with you just in case.
Let us all know what fishing you want to do with it, plus what rod reel etc you intend to try it on and the members will assist you with what weight line you should be after.
