I have started tying direct to spool using this great knot (or solution):

Couple wraps of Teflon tape, then tie direct. Works great!

For me, most my bfs doesn't hold much line so I run straight.

I feel if it's an uneven amount of backing you could throw off the balance of the spool and if it's larger diameter backing then the line peel of mainline could be effected

That is what I use without the half hitches. I normally go around the spool twice prior to making the Arbor knot. Doesn't seem to slip. I'll try adding those half hitches instead.

I go 5 wraps around the spool and finish with a uni knot, holds great and no slippage.
