Nope - the company is still listed as being in Oregon but no website. Maybe Lee has extra info?
Another site that's disappeared is Paulus line testing (Oz) - there was a great deal of useful stuff on that site.

Jerry's website was never up to speed and I'd bet he shut it down.  He is still around and living a few miles up the Rogue River from Gold Hill, OR.

I just recieved some 60 lb hollow braid. I had a hard time inserting the needle. I Would hate to see the 40 lb it would be very tough getting the needle started.

I have small needles and have no problem with 60# hollow.  JB hollow 40# is expensive so I use 40# POP Ace Hollow, and like it.  I have used JB 40# hollow and it is easy to work with.

My eye sight isn't so good and I have to stab at it. But I got the job done. Alan are you able to put line on the 20/0  or is it to big.

I have bulk spools of JB 65 and 80 lb solid braid that I can splice loops and hollow core into, has any one else tried this? If there is interest I can upload a tutorial

Bring the reel. If my winder can't handle it,  no one's can.
