  10. Hi, Filling up a spinning reel spool with braided line. Something that I think I could improve. What is the best way have as much line as you can get and as tight as possible on the spool? Is it better to spool it by reeling the line with the reel or try and optimize the line lay by having the spool rotating with some tool (like a drill) and lay the line along the spool with your own hands like at the shops? 2 years ago, I bought an Ecooda portable Spooler thing (Piscifun also sells it) I really like that the spool spins as the line goes on the reel. Some people wont agree but I think this might be a good thing because it eliminates (completly?) line twist that I frequently experienced before (when leaving the spool on the ground with the label facing up). With this gadget, the thing is that you are limited on the actual tension you can put so the line feels tight but could be tighter. You are also spinning the reel handle and using the gears, so how much pressure can you actually put... I will share this: Using the Ecooda spooler, I spooled my Penn Clash 6000 with 30lbs Kastking Mega 8 braid. All the way to the last ''Line capacity ring''... It seemed like it was tight enough and would not dig in. The line spool was 547yds, but there is no way I fitted the 490yds of 30lbs braid that Penn states will fit this particular reel. Then I go to Cabo, hook into multiple big fish from the beach en enjoy the longest runs I ever heard on my reel. Alot of line come out...cast + fish run = >200-250yds? Anyway, this line goes back on the reel with all the pressure of these fish. After my trip I realized that my line is much closer to the middle ''Line capacity ring'' than the last one... And now the line is VERY tight on the spool. Looks like I could fit 100yds or so of more braid... Now I'm wondering if I should fill it more with the rest of my spool making a connection double uni-knot (10 wraps each side) or will I whish I didn't when a big fish make a long run with15lbs-20lbs of drag on that knot. (I will prbably make another topic about braid to braid connection knots and purposes) So... Should we over fill it a bit at the beginning? We all know that Penn Spinners don't like being overfilled, so if I'm going to loose 50-70yds on braid from windknot.... Should I wet the spool? ? ? I'd like to here some ideas. thanks!

  14. Hi, This is my fist post (after being a long time reader) so thanks in advance. I've been surf fishing the Outer Banks for a few years and recently decided to upgrade my gear, mainly to casting (vs. Spinning). My first puchase was a deeply discounted Penn Torque and I've grown to love it during my practice field casting (it will be on its fist trip in oct). My second purchase was a new Abu 6500i TSR and it arrived last night. my concern and question to this group is how much left to right play should the spool have and should it sound like it is rubbing when I lean it to one side. I am able to shift the spool left and right about 1/16 to 1/8 of an inch and when in free spool (spinning it with my thumb, no line) it sounds as if the spool is lightly making contact with the housing if I tilt it towards the side of the handle (it makes no sound if level or leaning g the other way). I opened that side up to see if it was missing a spacer but it looked like all the parts in the diagram were there. I would consider myself a newbie to the casting side so I don't have much knowledge to minimize these concerns if in fact they are normal. I thought I would reach out here before contacting the seller or Abu. Thanks!!
