I am going to take avantage of the free spider wire coupons I got from the GI Joes derby and get some put on my reels. The coupons are good for 150yds which is more than enough. I have about 100yds of tuff xp on my reels now and never had a problem. The problem is I spooled the reels myself and just "eyeballed" the backing and braid amounts until it looked right. I know if I'm going to have Joes do it I will need to tell them "Put __yds of __#test mono on then put the 150yds of spider wire on. I figured enough of you guys on this board have been through this you might be able to help me out with the numbers to get it right. It will be going on a Calcutta and a ABU6500. Also any thoughts on spider wire would be appreciated. I've never used it but free is a good price to try it....unless it sucks . Thanks a bunch.
