Shimano Saros And Braid
Posted June 30 2012 - 02:55 PM
I wanted to know if the Shimano Saros is braid ready, not needing a mono backing. I recently bought one and was thinking about putting some braid on the second spool when I noticed the spool spool wasn't smooth, but had lines in it. Thanks!

Quickest way to tell if a spinning reel is braid ready is to look at the spool. Most braid ready spools will have a strip or two of rubber running up the spool arbor.
Right.............That said any spinning reel is braid ready, wrap electrical or masking tape around the arbor first, I even do this when I'm spooling mono line. For bass fishing you don't need more than 50 or so yds of line, backing first is good cost cutting measure.
