Winding line onto a CT reel.

Postby EoinMag » Wed May 16, 2007 3:47 pm

Can someone explain to me how to wind line back onto, or even how to initially load the line onto a ct reel? Are both methods the same?
Any help would be much appreciated.

Ok having read that I started correctly with the humps ala Neil Mackelows tuning site, but wasn't sure about the further filling of the spool after that and I was doing a criss cross every few turns thinking that was necessary. Looks like I'll have to unload to another reel then go again. Reel was well balanced but Sean there reckons that criss cross will cause a snap off.

Cheers Paddy.

Get used to it, :lol: ive had to load and unload certain spools up to 6-7 times to get it right, some spools are more balanced than others even when brand new from the box, you will know when its right the spool just keeps going and going and going, but its deff one thing that has to be done right.
