Re: Need help getting set up
Winding backing does take some time but if you're sitting watching TV in the evening it's certainly not hard to do. Just need to learn a couple knots: I use an arbor to connect the backing to the reel and then a nail knot to connect the line to the backing, I think that is fairly common. If you're buying the line and backing anyways and they'll load it, no reason not to have them do it at the store.
