Re: Line Backing
On your reel, between the line and the line guards, you need to have space of about the thickness of a pencil
Go ahead and strip the line off, then cut the backing back enough to make it happen.
There's a bunch of good knots that you can use to reattach backing to line
Most common is the nail knot.
I use a loop2loop connection with a whipped loop in the line and a bimini twist in the backing.
