Spooling Hacks

Fishing with braid has its advantages: it is thinner and stronger that monofilament or fluorocarbon, and the no-stretch properties make it super-sensitive to detect even the most subtle bites. There is also less memory in the line, so depending on how much you use it, you may only need to change your line a few times a year.

Here are a few tips and hacks to help you respool correctly and get the best performance and longest life out of your line. In this video, you’ll learn how to make sure your reel is designed to handle braided fishing line and if not, apply some simple steps to modify the reel so your braided fishing line will function correctly. You’ll also learn a great way to easily respool your reel by yourself using common household items.
