8 and 12 lb Amnesia?

I am looking for an on-line source of lighter test colored Amnesia to tie into leaders as sighters. Most places appear to have either heavier Amnesia or charge more for shipping than the cost of the line. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Where do you live? I've found the 8lb and 12lb in some shops. There are also acceptable alternatives available at brick and mortar shops both in fly fishing specific and general tackle forms.

On the other hand, one spool of amnesia will last you FOREVER. You can make reusable sighters with tippet rings in either end and they can last indefinitely and be added to leaders as needed. So while the shipping cost might be high, you're not going to piss it away in a hurry.
