Spooling Options

We've been doing this a long time, have more experience spooling up reels for long range fishing than virtually anyone, have more experience working with Spectra (braided lines) than any other retailer. No idle boast, it's simply what we do since we cater to the long range fishing enthusiast, as well as private boaters, surf anglers... When you have us spool up your reel you can be certain that's it's done right, packed properly and won't slip on the spool. You can watch a video of the way we do things by visiting our YouTube channel - CharkBaitUSA - and you can see the care we take. In 2012 we added a bit to our spooling strength by purchasing the most expensive and the best line winder built - the Omega Winder. You can check out that winder on our YouTube channel as well as other rigging videos. Visit CharkBait USA on YouTube...

At about $7K the Omega is not cheap, but let me tell you a bit about this chunk of machining brilliance we've invested in for our clients benefit. We've always recognized the need for winding on Spectra under pressure. And, in all honesty, we've gone round and round with more than a few manufacturers regarding this point. If the line is not wound under proper load, you run a few risks. The line can dig into the spool, creating a quick stop to your running catch - a critical issue when battling a big tuna! Additionally, if not wound super tight the line can actually rotate on your spool under load - disconcerting at best! Well, we worked around those obstacles by use of backing the Spectra as well as use of a mechanical brake and a firm hand (with leather glove) when winding line. Intuitive logic says, if you're fishing at 30#'s of pressure, you'd better come darn close to that when winding the line on the reel in the first place. It also makes a difference in how much line can actually be loaded on a reel in the first place. In the past we've used the Triangle HD140, a very good winder which runs about $2200. In the image above you can see how this piece of gear dwarfs the HD140.  That's the standard, yet we do things additionally to gain the desired winding pressure we've felt necessary. The new winder which I first saw a year or so ago, and drooled about since, takes things to a whole new level, applying hydraulic pressure of 200-500psi to gain consistent line tension during spooling. As a result, line is packed perfectly, capacity on a reel can increase by as much as 15% (much more than that when compared to other dealers who are not as schooled as we are...) and we're not burning through brakes and gloves. There's less chance of damaging a reel from spooling, and we're able to gain capacity as well as make an improved pack of your expensive line. For our long range clients, folks fishing 30-80 class gear targeting cow sized tuna, you will appreciate the investment we've made. This state of the art investment further demonstrates our commitment to your angling success, and goes a step further in fulfilling our obligation to our clients.

For smaller size reels we typically use the Triangle HD140, a winder running about $2K. Properly handled, this winder is indeed very capable of winding line properly. The big Omega is what's needed when running heavier lines, in our opinion. We have several HD's at our Huntington Beach location, and run two of them at our San Diego shop. In time, we'll add an Omega to the San Diego location.

When spooling up a reel with Spectra, we first take time to use a bit of paraffin on the spool, then we use a surgical tape on the spool itself to allow the line something to grab. We use a LONG tag line, again to help prevent slippage on the spool. Then, when running the HD's we set a mechanical brake to the desired tension AND put some leather to the line spool to produce the desired packing tension. When packing line, consider that if you are on a good fish you are pulling a certain amount of drag. If your line is not packed under load chances are you can dig the line into the pack or rotate on the spool. Both of these things can cause you to loose a fish, or worse. We try to take appropriate steps to prevent that issue.

In terms of lines, we stock a wide range of mono, so we can spool up your reels however you wish, Izorline, Momoi, Hi Seas, P-Line, Ande, Berkeley, all are available. With respect to Super Braids, we stock Izorline, ToroTamer, Momoi, Daiwa's Boat Braid, and other lines will be represented as they become available and proven. Should you have any questions regarding your reels line, spooling suggestions, feel free to send us an email using one of the links at the bottom of this page or give us call. We'll be glad to help you make the right selections for your particular application.

The ordering boxes below provide many options for your particular fishing applications. These options are available for folks ordering reels from us and also available should you wish us to re-rig your reel. Over the years many clients send us their gear for rigging, given a lack of expertise where they may live and a requirement that braid especially be applied onto a reel properly.
