Line Diameter/Line Recovery When Spooling A Reel?

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I ask this question because I want to use cheap 8 lb. mono backing on some of my reels and save money by getting more out of a spool of main line The main line could be anything from 10-65 lb. braid to 10-20 lb. flouro. My reels are older Shimanos that don't print the Recovery in the specs. So I took a reel that had 12 lb. flouro on it and marked a spot on the line and turned the handle one turn and marked again, it came out to be about 25". Would this 25" recovery be close enough for any line that I choose to spool my reels with?

 

Thanks in advance,

Joe

Assuming we are talking about a BC reel, 12-15 lb mono would make a better backing, though anything will work I guess.

While "recovery" or IPT isn't a constant, it can be calculated for a given "fill" of a spool

 

IPT= the diameter of the spool (as filled) times pi times gear ration.
