Bulk Fluorocarbon?

Has anyone found cheaper fluorocarbon at .005 (5x) in spools larger than the typical small spools most of us pay about $15 for? I found some that were 200 yards for $25 but still a bit thick...

Rio Fluoroflex sell for $39.95 for 100 meter spools...but I guess that would not qualify for cheaper fluorocarbon tippet.

I only fish fluoro with nymphs and streamers, etc. ... sub-surface. Theoretically fluoro is "invisible", so, being that I'm not trying to drop a sz18 dry in the softest manner possible I don't sweat it and have just bought a full sized spool of fluoro from P-Line and Seaguar InvisX. For simplicity in the vest I wrap it around old tippet spools.

P line is fine if you are not worried about diameter. For bass fishing etc I like it. For trout river fishing (4x, 5x, 6x) I still cough up 50 cents a yard for Rio Fluoro.
