What kind of reel is it? I have a new style penn and it is terrible at twisting line. I've tried respooling three times all different line. Nothing I've tried works and I've found reviews online saying the same thing.

after following the manufacters recommendations for spooling line on the real, i tie a snap swivel to my line walk outside, hook the snap swivel to something heavy and walk all the line off the reel.with light pressure held on the line between two fingers i reel my line slowly onto the reel making sure the line doesnt touch the ground or anything else to keep the swivel from doing its job.if that doesnt work check out the line roller itself.id take it to the bait store and see if it does it when they use the machine to spool it

What kind of rod and reel is it?

I would respool it. If you do it yourself, keep tension on the line. Outcast, Dizzy Lizzy's, Hot Spots, etc. will all be happy to do it for you, too.

I spool mine myself often. I take a pencil and stick it through the middle of the line wheel. Then I grip the pencil between my big toes and the ones next to it. After that, I keep pressure on the line while I reel it in.

Here's a similar way, using the hands instead of the feet: http://youtu.be/gTH9gmeG7DM

wet your line while your spooling it and put pressure on it so it goes on tight.

I've been spooling spinning reels with this technique since I first saw this. Easy peasy. I've done it with ultra light crappie reels and up to an 8000 Penn Battle. Just remember not to put on too much line.

I tie an albright or red phillips if I'm attaching a leader.

RIP Jose. I watched the video the whole way through again btw, even though I've seen it several times already.

I always get my line spooled up at the tackle shops.. It is usually where I purchase my fishing line as well, so it just makes sense! Not sure if I'd get it spooled up at academy or walmart though..
