Knot to attach Braid to Spool
Posted April 17 2008 - 09:27 AM
I used a square knot (ok not the best) to attach the line to the spool.
I found when the spool got wet that all the line on the spool was able to spin which prevented the drag from working properly, etc.
What is the best knot/way to start a spool of braid to prevent this from happening.

Either use a electric tape and tape the braid to the spool; or tie about 4-6 warps of mono to the braid and spool up like that.
Do a search on the forums, there is a lot of info.

Put enough mono on the spool to cover it and then attach your braid to the mono backing.
Use a uni knot to connect the mono to spool and use a uni to uni connection to join the mono to braid. Don't be afraid to use a little glue on the line to line connection.
