Lining a Spinning Reel

I need to put 200 yrds of SpiderWire braid on a reel. No two Youtubes does it the same way. Is it really that complicated?

You get less twist if you take it off the spool with the spool sitting on its side. The easiest way is obviously by having someone hold a screwdriver through the spool while you crank it on. This gives more line twist that the other way. Also, to insure the line winds on evenly, run the line through the eyes of your rod and crank it on that way. If you do it just holding the reel, it tends to no lay right.

I took a piece of 2 X 6 and put a bolt through it with a wing nut. I just drop the spool on and crank away. Make sure you put tension on the line using your other hand.

I use the nail in a fence post approach. First year I sit the spool on the nail, tie a loop in the braid, run the line though the loop and sit it on the right way to bind when reeled. Next year, or more likely two years later. I cut the leader off, tie and loop in the end and hook it to the fence post. Strip the reel and cut it free. Head back to the post and loop the old end on the reel and reel back that entire section on the reel and tie a new leader to the fresh end.

This is meant to get 2 years out of one leader. I many times get 4 years due to slacking and not replacing it. Bass aren't that hard on the braid.

The way it comes off the spool is the way it should go onto the reel. Reverse them and it will twist. Back the spool half way with some mono, then finish up with the braid. You'll get two reels filled for the price of one. You'll never use the inner line anyway.

Once you've spooled the reel up, best to unspool the line into a body of water without anything attached (no weight, no lure, etc) and reel it back through a moist cloth. Guaranteed to remove any remaining twist.

For most reels,spool with the label of the line facing up.Older Mitchel reels (maybe other reels ???) wind in the opposite direction.So,label facing down.
