    i suspect my new accurate reel and i gone use this with braided line and i have a few questions before i start wift this
    -does the line come of the spool from the top or from the bottom when i put it on the reel or it's equal?
    -how tight do i have bring the braid on the spool
    -can i filled up to the end of the side from the spool or about 1 or 2 mm.less
    thanks for advice

    1. I always have it coming off the top, but it shouldnt make a difference under proper pressure.
    2. Some people will say 4-5 kgs of pressure. i spool it tight enough so that the braid is rock hard on the spool. if its spongy, its too light.
    3. i usually leave a little room

    what reel and what braid do you have?

    Your gonna need a very big spool, PE 6 is a bit light for that reel. Most use PE8+
