spooling a spinning reel

Recommended Posts

Hey I just wanted to get some feedback on the different ways/methods, or most efficient ways, of spooling a spinning rod.  I have had difficulty in the past with line "jumping" off my spinning reel leaving me with a mess.  So before I go and spool my spinning reels for the season I was going to compare so different methods. Thanks!

line jumping off a spinning reel usually means you put too much line on. give yourself a little less than 1/4 inch of empty space on a 2500 size

From a couple of weeks ago:

Spool just like you would a baitcaster, line feeding

off the bottom.

Keeping tension on the line and using a low memory line will also help.

Line jumping off a spinning reel spool can also be caused by using a line that's too stiff to be used on spinning reels.

what type of line do you guys use for your spinning set ups.. I only have 3 spinning reels-- 1 for shakey heads, 1 for senko's, and 1 for misc applications (lt weight plastics/ finesse jigs)

mono - trilene xl

copoly - yo zuri ultra soft (only co-poly ive used)

flouro - trilene 100% (only flouro ive used)

never tried braid but i hear powerpro is the way to go.

6lb mono diameter is good for 2500 size spinning reels.

Most of my gear is fairly old so I must use the old ways. I put the line spool flat on the floor with the label up. Line through the guides and on the reel with an arbor knot.

Take a half dozen cranks or so and check for twist. No twist, fill to about 1/8 from the reel spools edge, farther away from the edge is better than closer. After the first cranks if there is twist turn the linie spool over.

Never crank against a slipping drag. I find that hard to do so I set my drag heavy and back reel.
