    I have a Penn captiva and whenever I put on new Braid Line it does not "pack" evenly on the spool. Any thoughts?

    do you have tension on the line when spooling? It really helps. Also, are you using a mono backing? that could help too.

    Tension, more than you would normally use for mono, is the key...
