This is the way. You want the line coming off the spool the same way it comes onto the reel. The best thing you can do if you have a boat is after you spool it attach a good swivel and a decent sized weight for the size reel then let all your line out behind you and reel it back in slowly with tension from your fingers, the swivel will eliminate all the twist for you.

Then rinse and spray some kind of line conditioner, KVDs, reel magic, etc. (Do this before and after.)

Most local tackle stores will spool your reels up for free if you either buy the line or just provide it yourself. The real deal line spooler does a far better job in my opinion.

I totally agree. I just respool often as I have many different reels for different fishing situations, but I don't have the time to drive from Milton to pcola just to get my reels spooled so I just made a cheap one.

+1.

You can also use your wife or GF as the spooler/holder. Little easier to look at, usually.

Drop your filler spool in a bucket of water deep enough to float the spool. As you wind on the line, the spool will spin and compensate for the differences in the diameter of your filler spool and your reel.
