Default Re: How do you organize all those spools?

It looks cool, but if someone loads a spinning reel by unrolling it off the supply spool as shown in the illustration, they are going to have a world record case of line twist. The spool will lay the line out straight, but the reel will turn the line over exactly once with each revolution of the reel.

This is not what line manufacturers want you to do, and it is not what reel manufacturers want you to do.

I would keep the spools of line in the case, but I would take the spool out of the case to fill my reel from it.

You could fill a baitcasting reel that way, though, and it should work perfectly.
