waynesburg you should be able to spool it about 1/8 of an inch from the top of the spool
1/8 of an inch is the closest you want to go on the spool. to much line can cause terrible backlashes and not enough line will give your reel bad casting performance. if using any of the super braided lines, make sure to start with a monofilament backing before spooling with the super-braid. I like using a blood knot to join the 2 lines together. this knot works great when the 2 lines are of a different diameter.

While a blood knot definitely works great for connecting the two lines, it can be a little difficult to tie without 3 or 4 hands. The Albright knot will work just as well, and is much easier to tie.
