You can use a drill I use taped bolt, washers , rubber washers and a wing nut as a makeshift shaft. 

 

Thats what I did. You could also stop a few times during wind in, flip the bail, and focus on the middle with a hand wind enough to hump it.

just , take spool off reel, hand hump the middle with mono line, then put back on reel. and use reel to finish the rest with braid or mono.

I hand wrapped the mono hump in the middle but for some reason when I spooled it it hourglass

is this on a vs100 or 200 ?  how much hump did you do ?

It's on a vs 150...... I humped about half  of the mono and then I figured if I just spoiled it normally with somebody else holding the bull and I real and it would naturally hump but I guess it didn't do that

not sure how much hour class / hump, but i have done as below

 

- hump about 3/4 of support, 

- then put spool back in reel ,, than reel the reminding by reeling the reel to every hour the hour class shape.

- sine vs do not have much hour class at all 

- so you would have to play back and forward.

This is what I’ve been using for a few years now. Sometimes it’s tricky because the spool really isn’t Locked onto the bolt and he drag just wants to go, there’s always a sweet spot.
