Re: How much line to put on UL spool?

I put just enough mono just keep the braid from slipping. When the braid needs changing I just take it off and put it back on the reel with the old end first. I get twice the use on the line and don't have to deal with backing or the extra knot.

If you're using HiVis braid you can see your lack line jump. I don't have much lack line either, except for flutes. Bass seem to hold on to them lack line or not. Lack line not a problem for me.
Always watch the line. HiVis or regular.
Just a little easier to see HiVis than fluoro.

The conquests for the most part are lighter more balanced, more accurate, have better backbone, and are more versatile. To be honest I don’t use the nrxs much anymore and mo...

Re: Inductors: Type R+ vs Mag Z

I have OG HLC Zillion and that's 36 mm spool. That's great spool for distance casting but in basic fishing situation it's pretty horrible. Maybe it would get better with thinner mono and not to be spooled full. I have also I'ZE Factory HLC spool which is for Steez (34 mm) and I us it with sv tw Zil...
