Make sure that the line goes on the reel in the same direction as it comes off the spool otherwise you could end up with line twist. Failing that you could always invest in a spooling station.

Does anyone know if spooling stations are any good? Worth the money? confused

Thanks

Hi, all i do is, put a pole through the line spool and trap it somehow, then set up a rod, feed the line through the eyes front to reel, tie it, and reel in. you can also get someone to apply a little pressure to the spool to keep tension. Cheers...Mick

Spooling Stations are worth there money as not only do you get the Station which is suitable for either fixed spool or multiplier but also you get a motorised line stripper for stripping line off your reel as well a a motorised hook sharpener.

All that for 25

i tend to use a load of cheap thick line on first and use only 200yards of the good stuff after that. that way you will only ever have to replace 200 yards instead of a whole spool, also depending on the way your spool lays the line on the spool you may want to bulk out the spool manually using the thick line towards the middle or ends of the spool to accomodate the shape of the normal line when fully loaded.

cheers .... Mick happy

For those with a spare spool you can of course wind it on to that so that the line that has never seen the light of day lays on top.

i've got an old spool fixed upside down to my work bench which i load up quickly using the method used by manic, just hod the spool in one hand by the stick, then wind it onto the spool with the other. then i set up the botom half of one of my rod, as it has the firts of the eyes on. i can then put some tension on with the front drag of the 'donar' reel so it goes on under tension.

also, i'm very much a fan of braid at the moment so i back fill with plenty fat line
