  5. Ryobi masterline ?? Can't find anywhere!

    Hi, many many years ago my parent fished and had a reel with droppers that you broke off as you needed. We can't seem to find it anywhere.. all I can get is the individual packets of leaders with droppers. My parents are in their 70's and asked me to find this product and I can't find it anywhere.. No shop has heard tell of it! Sorry I'm a fishing dunce too which doesn't help. Can anyone help me? I'll try include a photo of an old box they found of the product.. thanks in advance!
