Default Fly line on spools

My opinion on the way they roll on fly lines on spools (tip first) is wrong. They should put the running line on first and then end with the tip, this way your taper and tip should be streight and not twisted and kinked by the tension of all the other line on top. Means you would have to roll it on another spool before putting it on the reel, but if it keeps a nice stright taper and tip who cares. And sometimes stretching only makes it worst. My opinion. What do you think.

But Cortland 444 seems fine, but a lot of others are not, It,s a pain.

I haven't encountered such a problem with any line I used. Been fly fishing over 20 years. I do occassionally, stretch my line if needed. BTW, when you stretch it, do you pull out all the line and measure in half evenly...then stretch?

good point, perhaps the line companies need improved packaging, i.e. something other than the current spool.
while on the subject, anyone know what a flyline cost to mfg?

No, I just hook the fly in a log or something and pull out what line I am going to use and pull on it for awhile then let the tension off slow, some times it works sometimes it don,t.
