Spiderwire on Baitcaster?

8 posts in this topic

I tried to spool some Spiderwire on my baitcaster, but it just spins. There is not a hole to run the line thru, how in the hail do I spool the Spiderwire....
Thanks

With superbraids, you need to put a few yards of mono on first and then splice the mono to the spiderwire.
Personally I buy 150 yd. spools and put mono on until I have room for 75 yds. of superbraid left. I never use 75 yds. of line anyhow so this allows me to spool 2 reels.

You can also use a little piece of tape to secure it to the spool, otherwise like was said before, just a yard or so of mono to start the spool off.

I allways use electrical tape on any of my reels that have spiderline or fireline and have never had a problem with it.

Make sure your Rod and Rod guides can handle Spider wire, It will ware thru your guides fast with all the casting you will be doing for muskies.
