They are taking the spool off the reel to fill it so oscillation speed doesn't play a factor.  

Usually do it myself.  However it's the first time having to spool a longcast reel for me.  I read because the way to reel winds on the line ( 6 wraps up 6 wraps down or similar) it can't be done with a machine. 

But id rather not have to guess at the amount of backing.

Why can't it be done with a machine?

Gets spooled on tight.  First cast and retrieve then winds the line on with the oscillation pattern.
