How to Spool a Spinning Reel with Braided Line
In this instructional video, On The Water’s Chris Parisi demonstrates how to spool a spinning reel with Spiderwire Invisibraid Ultracast 30 lb test, included in each Striper Cup Entry Package. Summarized directions are included below.
Cabo 50 PT Reel
Berkley Trilene 12lb Test
Spiderwire Invisibraid Ultracast 30lb Test
Razor Blade (for cutting tag ends)
Screwdriver (for allowing spool to spin)
String the backing through the eyes of the rod and open the bail.
Wrap the line around the spool of the reel twice to ensure that the knot doesn’t slip or spin.
Tie a Uni-Knot (see video for instruction), trim the excess line and pull the knot tight to the reel.
Flip the bail shut and start reeling the backing in, keeping tension on the line by with your index finger and thumb, until it fills up the reel half way with line.
Attach the Spiderwire to the backing using a Double Uni-Knot (see video for instructions) and trim the excess line.
Start reeling the Spiderwire in, again keeping tension on the line with your index finger and thumb, and with the Spiderwire coming off the bottom of the spool.
