Default Re: Orvis BBS III and Coils

FrankB2,

Excessive coils are a nuisance, just for the record I have questions. Do you have backing on the reel? Is the spool full, as in, as full as it can be without causing problems?

Some coiling is normal especially with standard arbor reels. By loading enough backing to create the facsimile of a large arbor you not only are ready for the inevitable large fish that will strip your reel of line but have provided a larger arbor to assist in reducing coiling. You may in fact have a materials problem with the line in question. However, I have always been a practitioner of the full spool as mentioned.
