I was just designing a spooling tool to hold both spinner and bait caster spools all in one package.  Mono and braid are straight forward, but I was wondering how flourocarbon comes into the mix with both spinning and bait casting reels?  Do I just fill my reels per each requirements with fluoro?  Any quirks?

What do you mean how does fluorocarbon come into the mix?

For both spinning & casting reels - I fill approx 1/3 of the spool with mono backing.

Pound test of the backing depends on the size of the rig - generally it's 12lb.

The top 2/3's of the spool gets the braid, mono or fluorocarbon.  

I do it this way because at some point that 'top shot' will get a bit worn and rather than tossing it - I will turn it around (end for end it) so the older end is back connected to the mono backing and the newer / unused length of line is on top and ready to fish.  Once that end gets worn - I'll toss it all (down to the backing) and spool new line.

Having 2/3 of  the spool for main line usually keeps me from casting down to the worn/old stuff after I switch it around.

 I use bulk spools of each type of line I fish. 

 

Hope that helps
