Spinning reels twist the line as it goes on the spool and untwist it as you cast. If you pull it off with a loose drag then it won't untwist on the way off. You are better off opening the bail arm and using some alternative friction.

This is the opposite to taking it off the original spool where there was no twist.

I take my line off by attaching a spool to a drill and winding it off the side.
I then wind it back on to the reel through a wet rag, that I hold against the shaft of the rod.

I understand people do that with mono so that it is on the same way and therefore the memory doesn't make the line "bounce" off the reel. Is the first step still necessary when doing it with braid?


I'm not sure, but it is pretty quick and easy to do it this way, so I have stuck with it.
If you want to reverse the line, you need to transfer from one spool to another though.

Call me old school but I still find that a phone book is the most effective way to apply impact without showing signs of bruising.

Phone books have so many use and the best bit is there free.
