    Would have thought that any hidden away would have been well past it's sell by date now, it hasn't been made for a few years.

        I used to use omega all through the range and bought it in bulk. Kept it in the dark and as cool as possible but it got to a point when most strains broke well below their stated b/s. Ultima then stopped selling omega and introduced extreme. I tried various ebay sellers for omega but was never totally satisfied that it was fresh line so eventually moved to extreme and XT7 for hooklengths. Then Garbolino brought a rig line out and it blew the extreme out of the water both with b/s and knot sttrength. Ultima power match is good but it's my third choice behind the Garbolino and Shimano Antares silk shock which seem very similar. Bet it's at least 5 or 6 years since they stopped making omega.

          quite a few years back a top match angler put me on to omega pro and ive never been able to get an alternative that i feel comes close, ive a few half spools left and made some rigs up and landed some good carp and barble without a problem ,playing fish felt completly different just full of confidence in it,i think thats what its all about?
          whats the garbolino line your using

            It's just called Garbo line, originally on a black spool but the more recent stuff is on a clear spool probably cos it looks more flash on display. I've just been through my cupboards and found a 50m spool of 0.20/8.2lb omega that seems ok. it's yours if you want it for margin rigs etc. I was only gonna use it for reel backing so PM me if you want it.
