    I just bought a Metaloid 5N. Do I need to spool with mono first before passing the braid? I want to make sure the braid doesnt slip on the spool. Thanks!

    I put a tiny bit of electrical tape on the bottom of the spool, then load the spectra right on top of that nice and tight, then to a top shot. Will not slip guaranteed!

    Little car wax or boeshield T-9 helps with spool corrosion. Then twice around with finger tape or electrical tape san diego knot ur spectra tighten down and spool. Spectra needs to be packed pretty tight 5 to 10lbs of pressure if not ull run into a lot of bite-in, spectra tangles and knots etc while fishing. GL!

    Thanks everyone for the great suggestions. I'll definitely was it and use some electrical tape. I cant wait to test it out. Great deal at charkbait.
