    :big_smile:Saltwater reels without levelwind are pretty comon. The line will pretty much giude itself (sometimes with a little persuasion from your thumb). It's not gonna spool itself back and fourth like a levelwind, but when it starts building up on one side it will naturally start working its way to the other.

    Place butt of rod at your belt line or buy or make a harness. Left hand on forward handle. While reeling, place thumb on one side of line, then the other side. After awhile it will come natural, you won't have to look at the reel.

    who needs a levelwind? some of my penns don't have them,and it doesn't bother me a bit,I don't spool them completly full either,I don't need 450 yards of line.levelwinds are just a helper that sissy bass fishermen need!:wink:
