It seems impossible to get Black
dacron line from UK suppliers at present. I don't mean "Climax Black Dacron", which is white with black flecks, but pure black line like the stuff below.Goodwinds
in the US sell it - $25 for 1000' of 250lb line which will last me for years. They will ship it to the UK at cost (making the total low enough to escape import duty), but I fear the UK imposition of VAT (and the extra associated 'handling charges' imposed by the UK Post Office) will add significantly to the cost.
Does anyone in the UK have recent experience of importing line (or other KAP stuff) from the US? If so, what sort of percentage did the VAT costs add?
