How much line should I put on a closed face reel?
In my experience, it’s best to hold the line between your thumb and index finger about 6 inches from the eye of the cone so that there is no slack in the length between these two points. Continue reeling until the length specified on the reel is reached. Do not overload the spool, it may cause the line to slip off.
Can you put braided line on a closed face reel?
The manufacturers of spin-cast reels strongly suggest avoiding the use of braided lines because of the wear it can cause on pickup pins.

Is 150 yards enough fishing line?
150 yards should be plenty of line. If you get spooled with 150 yards of line on, the problem is not the amount of line you have but that you do’t have enough drag capability. You shouldn’t need to leave 30 yards of line on. 5 to 10 should be plenty or put one turn of electrical tape directly on the spool.
How often should I replace fishing line?
It doesn’t matter which type of fishing line you’re using, whether it be a mono, a fluro, a braid or anything in-between; the quality of line will have an impact on not only it’s use but also how it degrades over time and over the frequency which it is used. You should change your fishing line once or twice a year.
