Whats you favourite line lay on spinning reels and why?

I always aim for "even" but I'm sure there are reasons to do otherwise - whats your preference?

Also run the even line lay and like you am unsure of the benefits of doing anything else. Hope others can supply input as to why they prefer the forward or rear loading of line on the spool.

Every reel I've owned has been set up for an even line lay straight out of the box by the manufacturer.
Never had a problem, so see no reason to change.

Most of my reels came with a even lay, the odd couple that didn't were slightly top heavy. Never had a bottom heavy one that i remember.

Yeah I think having a spool specifically designed to take advantage of different tapers would be a key factor. Especially with the bottom heavy taper
