Geez - that amount of glob does sound excessive.

Yeah when it comes to mono and fc - I always have the spool I'm loading up from, flat on the ground and flip it if I notice twist after 20 winds.

My concerns with twist stem back to the mono days but I'd agree they havent been an issue with braid

I dont touch the braid at all when winding it on with tension. I use the pen between the toes method.

I've been loading spin reels with mono and FC for a hell of a lot of years with just a screwdriver or something through the spool and can't recall any line twist problems.

I must admit most times its on bait fishing reels and there's always a swivel in the rig somewhere.

Yeah right - I've always done it with the spool flat on the ground after being told it is the correct way - but I never thought to check it.

You can definitely introduce alot of twist, if the spool is the wrong way up, when spooling with my method and using mono - flipping the spool over fixes it


To test for twist mid spooling - you just introduce some slack to the line and if it ties itself up in knots - you know you've been doing it wrong

Yeah sometimes the simplest way is the best.

I've just avoided that method because I thought it added twist - (I'm beginning to think that fear might be unfounded)

Alot of my spooling techniques and theories have there origins in the 80's and were before braid - I might need to update my thinking and do some tests

I recall the Shimano paperwork that comes with their reels quotes you're way as the correct way to spool up. But us blokes never read the instructions, do we!

I guess it adds 1 full twist for every revolution of the bail roller, but that would also remove itself during a cast.
Line twist on the reel or in the water, whatever suits the owner, but nothing to worry about IMO.
