LOADING YOUR REEL PROPERLY

Filling the spool is an important step which must not be neglected before heading off to the water's edge. A badly filled spool could reduce casting distance and increase the risk of backlashes. 
 
We will explain to you how to fill your reel properly in 3 steps.

Step 1: open the pick-up then attach the line to the spool using a simple double knot. 
Step 2: after having closed the pick-up, turn the crank to wind the line holding it tight in a cloth. We recommend that you put the spool in a basin of water to reduce the risk of kinking. 
Step 3: fill the spool "to the brim" leaving a 1 to 2 mm margin then cut the line. The reel is ready. 

#CaperlanTip

Rigging up a few metres of nylon before assembling the braid helps you to fill the spool more efficiently. This also prevents the braid from turning on the spool. Use a Peixet knot to join the braid to the nylon line.
