Help With Reel Knotsreel knots
Posted April 06 2012 - 11:23 PM
I have a spinning reel my dad bought brand new from his boss for $10 each (we have 3 or 4), retail costs I think $59.
At least once a day on the lake when casting, it takes the wrong thread from the reel or whatever and makes a loop near the bail and I have to keep pulling the line until I get to where the loop is supposed to be, then untangle if it knots up, then reel it all back in.
Is there anything I can do to prevent this? I'm using 10lb line.
I just put this line on about a month ago, after having to cut off a bunch of my previous line because the loop.

- You may have too much line on the spool. Don't fill it all the way up to the rim. Instead, you should have at least 1/8"-1/4" of the lip exposed.
- Never, never, NEVER close the bail by turning the handle. Always close the bail by hand, and ensure the line has tension before cranking the handle.

I usually always close the bail by reeling it in, I will stop and hopefully it will stop the loops.
