The above video has a couple of good examples of spinning reel use.

Take a look at 16:25 for a demo on how not to use a spinning reel. Reeling against drag induces major line twist. [-X

Take a look at 29:00 for a demo on how it should be done. =D>
HAHA!!! I Lol'd at 16:25 for sure and that guy is a pro... :crying:
I question everything this guy endorses (Brandon Lester)

great link...

Reeling while the drag is engaged is something I thought most people learned not to do during their early spincast days..yeesh \:D/

It's the only way to deal with it as far as I know.
Yep the rare times I use one, this is exactly what i do.
