How To Spool Line On The Most Popular Spinning Combo
This lesson shows exactly how to spool up the Ultimate Inshore Spinning Combo that we just started offering for inshore fishermen to get an excellent combo at a great price.
Many fishermen rely on tackle shops to load line onto their reels, and I highly recommend doing it all yourself because you’ll save money and you’ll be able to it better than them if you simply follow the directions shown in the video below.
Not only will you have spool the lines so they have less twists than a store-spooled reel, you’ll see an easy trick to make sure you put just enough backing on the spool so that you can fit exactly 150 yards of braid on top of it.

Nobody cares as much about our fishing equipment as much as we do, so it’s on us to make sure we select the right equipment and that we put everything together the right way.
Once I started using these items and assembling them together as shown in the video above, my fishing has significantly improved in terms of casting distance, fish catching, and getting less wind knots.
I hope you give the lessons above a try.
