Mark Berg: Good day, I am Mark Berg and welcome to Rapala Fishing News. We are here, in the maintenance department at the Okuma and we are with Big Tony AKA Big T. How you are mate?
Tony: Good day Mark. How are you doing?
Mark Berg: Good, now this is the part of series of How To's that the Okuma guys want to bring to you guys out. I have brought in this reel, it's one of my little Vsystem here, is the 30 size and I am going to use it for bream fishing. I have got my some Sufix Fuse, it's ideal for that sort of thing. It's 6 pound, but what I have found is sometimes putting the braid on to a reel, you get a bit a line twist going on, what's the best way of spooling up your reel with braid?
Tony: Okay, most spinning wheels will spin clockwise -- as most fishermen will know, that they usually stick a screwdriver through a spool and --
Mark Berg: It comes off, that way.
Tony: Yeah, nine out of ten times when you use in a very small reel to an over sized spool, as it comes off the rotation on the spool is putting twist into the braid.
Mark Berg: okay, yeah, because that's smaller than what's coming --
Tony: Absolutely, so the way to avoid it is to actually find out which way the line is going on in comparison to the way it's coming off of the caster and by holding it sideways, put a bit of tension on it, it should lay on--
Mark Berg: So it should actually be put it this way as opposed to that way.
Tony: Yeah absolutely, depends on what you are spooling at the time. It could be a big reel than it doesn't really matter, you can spool it in direct.
Mark Berg: Okay, but if it's a smaller reel, you should place it on a side.
Tony: Absolutely, unless we stop.
Mark Berg: That's a great tip. Okay now let's get these off here, and show us how you would start it off. Now the ball arm comes over.
Tony: Yeah, well for starters, a lot of the fishermen would like to put some mono backing. So we'll start off, with maybe 10 or 20 meters, sometimes 30 meters --
Mark Berg: Is it necessary?
Tony: Well, if you put braid directly on the all new spool, because it's a shiny surface, on the braid as it compacts down, it becomes a big gasket and that will slip.
Mark Berg: That will slip on the spool.
Tony: On the spool.
Mark Berg: Okay, is there another way around that?
Tony: There is, you can either put the mono back in or put some type down on the spool so the braid has got something to bond on to.
Mark Berg: Okay, well let's do the type version. So I'll hold the rod for you and you can get it started.
Tony: Okay, let's get some sticky type.
Mark Berg: So just a normal masking type.
Tony: Yeah, a little bit of masking type, shouldn't need much, just enough so that the braid bonds on to. A short length would cover it; straight onto the spool, good cover.
Mark Berg: And the braid actually, just sort of grips onto it.
Tony: Absolutely, there's no more slippage, there's no shinny surface.
Mark Berg: Now is there only secret knot that you should be doing at this time.
Tony: Well, again many, many fishermen have got different styles and ask min? It's just a simple granny knot, through the loop twice and then basically fold it onto itself and --
Mark Berg: So it's just like slipknot you end up putting that at the top.
Tony: Pretty much a slipknot. Yeah started off, with the little loop, then fold it onto itself and always find that which way is going to be pulling to get the tuck in which is -- and then fold it over and away we go.
Mark Berg: Okay, now you can use machines to spool these, but you are better off if it's one straight off.
Tony: Absolutely, because you can dictate how much pressure you want on the spool. You can actually judge whether it's getting too, many twist if you just put on the machine and work away --
Mark Berg: It just goes straight on.
Tony: Exactly, you don't know what you are getting. So, as you spin it around, you will see that it's -- I am just applying a bit of pressure, with my finger and that's more than enough, because it's now stretching the braid. You can --
Mark Berg: So that's enough tension?
Tony: That's enough tension. Now if I tell you to stop and hold the bottom of the braid, if I let go, if you see there is any twist in there, you can change the direction of the way it's coming off, the spool. Now start winding again, and this is how you work out where, it's best suited to the reel. So as you can see, there is less twist now, coming off the hand caster.
Mark Berg: Yeah.
Tony: You can stop again, and grab the line again. We will let it go then, so there's very little --
Mark Berg: Very little twist there.
Mark Berg: So if there was twist that would twist and reduce the tension.
Tony: And we'll show that it's very --.
Mark Berg: Very tricky and that's just going on beautifully now.
Tony: Absolutely and there's enough pressure there to make sure, that the braid is going to dig into itself, there's not any force.
Mark Berg: And if your fingers ache up, you can stop for a second.
Tony: Well, I mean again there is not much pressure there. So if you apply too much pressure then the braid, will slow down.
Mark Berg: And that's pretty much it.
Tony: Pretty much it.
Mark Berg: Now, I am going to spool this all the way. So with the beauty of television, we will back in a second. Okay, Tony I am getting closer towards the end there. How do I know when enough is enough?
Tony: Okay as you know we just went -
Mark Berg: We are just into the spool, so that's enough.
Tony: That's right. Now you can see that it's just hitting inside the lip, that for me is perfect. It can allow you for maybe a short length of leader, to put on top without having to overwhelm the reel of the spool. To me that is a perfect set of spool up on an egg bait.
Mark Berg: So you don't want it all the way to the edge.
Tony: Absolutely not.
Mark Berg: A female under
Tony: A female under could set tp allows you to put and leaders, a fluorocarbon or monofilament or just a shock absorber, when you do connect to other one.
Mark Berg: Well that was pretty easy, really? It's not rocket science, is it?
Tony: Not at all.
Mark Berg: But once you know, it's always a good thing to have--
