If you are not kidding :roll:

Suggest you go to "Google" and type "how to load line on a fixed spool reel"...there are many ideas there.

A tip would be to fill 1/2 a bucket with water and drop the spool into it when you wind to line onto the reel...

Or use a wet towel and hold on to the line with it. Basically this makes sure the line does not get hot and lose some of its strength. And comes on to the reel real tight.

I too have a question regarding loading a reel. What should be the drag applied on the line while loading a Reel :arrow: :?:

Regards,

Ali.

I think the drag should be at its tightest so that the line comes on smoothly and evenly. The only thing to watch out for is that you do not allow the line to stretch too much.

Loading line onto a fixed spool reel is fairly simple.
At it’s most complex, it involves getting the right amount of backing onto the spool before putting on perhaps 100m of braid or other high quality main line.
The simplest way to do it is to get a reel with two spools.
Load your new mainline onto the first spool.
Tie on whatever backing you have using a double uni knot and leave tag ends of 7 or 8mm – leaving the tags this long will ensure that they are pushed flat by subsequent turns of line instead of sticking up and interfering with your casting.
Fill the spool with backing up to the level that you want.
Take the spare spool off, put your good spool on and transfer the line from one spool to the other.
The new line will now be back on top and the spool will be perfectly filled.
If you don’t have a reel with a spare spool, you can still use this method but you will have to transfer the line three times to get the new line on top.

Drag settings shouldn’t be more than about 30% of the BS of your line but will vary with the tackle that you’re using and the species that you are targeting. I will use light drag settings to discourage barramundi from jumping or to protect a hookhold that I don’t want to tear out or I might crank it right up to stop a GT from getting to the reef.
