Do it the way Jeff says and you won't have any problems, but both ways can work.Jeff
I used to load my reels as you describe with line coming off the spool the same way it goes onto the reel. However, Shimano instructions state that line should be loaded using 'the pencil through the middle' method due to the design of their rollers.
Any thoughts on this anyone?
Hiya Woody,What can happen is the line beneath develops a set and coils off. Also, it is squashed unde the tension of the line above and this can seem like a twist, but in reality, it's just deformed.
I know nylon will degrade in sunlight after a time, or so it is said, but I have line on some spools that I have had for more years than I know. Once you take a few metres off it then you're down to line that's been in the dark since it was last cast out.It's surprising how many people will change a line when there's no real need to.
