What's the best way to load JB hollow on to a JM PE4 reel at home without any fancy spooling equipment? I was thinking running the line through something like a phone book to put pressure on the line while winding it on the reel?? I recently got a 300m spool from Basil and need to do this. First spool the line on to another reel (preferably a lever drag) trying your best to give whatever hand tension you can. Then reel the line off of the first reel onto the reel you want the line on, using the drag of the first reel as your tension. It works great.
