Braid for Stradic Ci4+

Recommended Posts

Can I spool up my Stradic Ci4+ 2500 with straight braid or do I need a tape or mono backing. I know some reels can take straight braid, but some can't depending on whether the spool is equipped for it.

Yes you can, but it is not the best idea, as it will
slip quite easily. So best to either put several yards
of backing (cheap mono), or yes, electrical tape.

I've spooled straight braid on a few of my Stradics,
but usually use backing.

Create a slip knot and loop it in the right direction and carefully wind a few wraps. Then tape the wraps over with blue masking tape and you should be good.

Braid and flurocarbon are pricey your not going to cast a full spool so use some cheap mono backing and only put on as much line as you can cast then a few extra yards incase you get a big one that peels your drag. Just my two cents.
