My WFF 6 line arrived today. There was a tag on the end with the welded loop that said "ATTACH THIS END TO REEL" or words to that effect.

The LOOP end to the reel? I figured the tag was wrong and started to spool it on with the plain end to the backing. I thought I detected the diameter growing very soon after starting to reel it on, so then I decided to reverse it, as I *have* seen lines with a loop at the reel end.

I spooled it all on, cut off the loop and used a nail knot to attach some 25 # Maxima and then put a perfection loop in it. Took it out and casted it, and it seemed to cast fine.

Now I think I may be an idiot, because another guy on another board just received one of these and he decided the tag was wrong too, and says he is sure the loop end is the business end.

I am confused and embarassed. I might have judged it wrong, but mine sure seems to cast well spooled on the way I ended up. I guess I better check it one more time though... are those tags on the wrong end?

Hello,

The tags are on the running line side of the line that goes on the reel. The end loop on the taper section of the line. Hope this helps.


Thanks


Justin

Got mine today too!
got a tag on one end that said this end to backing or something like that and the loop end was void.
Got mine spooled up on the tiny cascade reel and awaiting my rod, and off to the waters.
that bright yellow looks fantastic against the flat black reel.

That's certainly the way it SHOULD be, and is the way it has been on all the RIO and Cortland lines I have purchased and installed, but that is NOT the way they are marked on at least my line and another guy on the WFF board.

My line had the tag on the loop end. I am absolutely certain of this. So did another guy on the WFF board. So the loop end should be attached to the leader in spite of the fact that the tag is on that end, huh? It seems the tags are on the WRONG END.

Could you check some of your yellow WFF 6 lines and see if the tag is on the loop end?
