Braiding A Baitcaster

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, do you recommend using a leader of mono to tie onto the spool before spooling braid. I do this on my spinning reels but I haven't in the past on a baitcaster.... but I haven't fished braid on a baitcaster in probably 5 years.

Thanks,

Dan

Either use backing or a layer of electrical tape to prevent line slippage. I use a lot of backing and only 2 1/2 casts worth (<100 yds)of braid. This saves expensive line that will never see the light of day.

Yep, about 6 turns of that cheap tacky electrical tape from WalleyWorld has worked great for me. Ideal width for my baitcasters too.
