First baitcaster need help spooling

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

Need some help please, just bought first baitcaster, it's a Daiwa Tatula 150P for MCod use.

When spooling braid does the line go throught the front guide and then over or under the bar behind the line guide?

I spooled it over the bar and it looks like it may run on a flat part at the rear of the line guide.

If it goes under the bar it misses the flat part at  rear of guide but is not a direct horizontal line to the guide..

Not sure which way to go.

Any advise would be great.

Cheers.

I was.just about to say over the top of the bar but looks like you have it sorted.

Looks like a nice reel.

I have a Slx 150xg , same deal.

Enjoy.

Put your line through the eyelet on the baitcaster and maybe through the first or all guides of your rod and then use a spool knot, 2 wraps followed by a uni knot pull it tight push it down and pull it tight again, snip the tag and then wind the line on with firm tension keeping the spool of braid upright facing towards you so there are no twists.

Good luck!
