If you choose to use mono, you don't need 100yds, you can use just enough to cover the spool 2-3 layers on the bottom. No tape needed.
I've used both methods without problems.

Two feet of mono will prevent slipping. No need for 100 yards. As the SX doesn't hold all that much line depending on what LB test your going with.
The only reason why you would use mono backing is to save money and decrease capacity.

If you have two of the same spools, Just put it on the second spool.

Depending on the diameter, lb test ETC you will be using will depend how much mono you will need to put on under the braid. Remember the Mono is a lot cheaper than braid.
How I spool is I put the braid on the reel 1st without tying a knot then I attatch the mono to the braid ( In Other words I spool it backwards) Then when I have the desired amount of line I need on the reel I transfer the line to another reel & transfer it on to the reel I am spooling. It may take a little longer but you have the exact amout of line that you need.
With all the different brands of lines out thetre it really is hard to tell just how much of mono or braid you will need. And the worst part if your not using a bulk spool is to run out of line & not have enough to fill your spool.

It stops and shift and is easily removed by using boiling water, which softens the glue.

Which means a partial reload after every fishing trip.
Its not an easy backing line to use, but its the best as far as water drag is concerned.
Reel spools should hold at least 2.4 times the rated Dacron capacity with 30lb GsP and 1.8 times with 50lb GsP

I tell everyone who uses braid to use some backing of mono to prevent this from happening.

I want to use braided line on my Pluton. Don't you also own one or were selling one?
