New line from spool to reel

2519 Views 17 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  Peril
I used to place line on my spinning reel with the new spool of line laying flat on the ground and the wraps of line going onto my spin reel in the exact lay as it came off the reel. I watched Starlo lay a new reel with line using the old screwdriver through the reel trick keeping a finger on the spool for control. I tried this but am not happy with the application. It may be me but I feel like it has line twist. What is the prefered method.

When spooling mono for my Alvey, I just whack the freshie in a bucket of lukewarm water and a squirt of dishwashing liquid.
Same for me on all types of reels, but haven't used the detergent
