Default Question about Sylk

Hey all, just spooled up my first Sylk line to use on my first bamboo rod. It's DT4 wt line. There's something rattling in the middle of the plastic spool the line came on. I can't seem to get at it easily and there's no information on the package so thought I'd ask if anyone knows what it is before I destroy the spool (I save them to store line on). I know I could email Cortland but thought I'd ask here first.

Thanks!

There's a fly line cleaner applicator inside...just pull the two parts of the spool appart...then you'll see two slots on each side...put them in front of each other and push...hope it's clear...if you can't let me know...it took me a while to understand how that works

William,

If the spool halves are anything like those the Liquid Crystal comes on - Don't throw them away.

They make great strainers for the kitchen sink so you don't chew up your knives in the disposal

Never thought of that use! I do save the spools but keep them on hand for storing line.
