Help Please! Spooling Reels Advice

Recommended Posts

Im heading to Lake Fork to fish with Tom Redington and am spooling my reels with 50# Suffix braid. My questions are as follows.

1. How much line fill prior to the braid, (I'm Cheap)?

2. How much braid per reel?

3. How many reel turns per yard of line on a 6:2:1,7:0:1and       6:4:1 ratio?

Thanks guys!

Interesting wording of a question. You know that on a 6.4:1 reel that the spool turns 6.4 times per crank of the handle. Now you need to get from the manufacturer or other source the number of inches per crank of the handle. Suppose it's 24". Multiply that by 1.5 to get to a yard of 36". Now multiply the turns of the reel spool 6.4 times 1.5 = 9.6. That's the number of reel spool turns per yard. Or if you meant handle turns, that would be 1.5 per yard.
