Default Re: New line doesn't fit reel... how would you proceed?

I'd cut off the last 10 or 15 feet. That will still leave you with a comfortable length of line. The versatility to turn the line around and use the other end was a lot more meaningful when lines were expensive and made of silk than it is if your line is a sale-priced house brand from Cabela's. I've got a whole DT4 on a Hardy Featherweight, which fits only because I don't have much backing on it, but the rear taper is so tightly coiled from being stored on a small arbor that it will never be usable as a front taper anyway.
