What kind is best? Whatever is cheapest. I use a bulk spool of Big Game 15#. I think I bought 1000 yds for like 7$ at Wal-mart.
Also, when you splice the lines, the alberto knot is the smallest, thinnest, best lying knot out there IMO. Heres a link on how to tie it. http://www.striperso...a/albertos-knot
It seems a little agressive at first, but I promise its actually not, and fairly easy to tie after the third time.

I use Copolymer rated for 14#s as backing, I put 5 yards on.
This is pretty much how I do it as well. I use just enough mono to wrap aroud the spool about a half-dozen times.
Contrary to popular belief, "Shimano" is not the answer to every question.

There is absolutely no need for backing when using braid on a spinning reel, as a cost cutting measure it's a good idea, but no slippage will happen if you use tape.

I used hockey tape for a while, then I switched to backing.
Lots of good info. thx. If I do use tape, what kind of tape, how much, and how do i stick it to the spool?? Also, what is the "check" that i can click next to peoples posts? Thx guys. Great Forum!!
