I sometimes feel that my modest Okuma Cascade combo's reel has too much line on it and I was wondering first if I should, and if I can, what is the best way to trim some line off of the reel? I was thinking that I may might to trim some line backing off, is this going to cause problems?
Re: Line Backing
On your reel, between the line and the line guards, you need to have space of about the thickness of a pencil
Go ahead and strip the line off, then cut the backing back enough to make it happen.
There's a bunch of good knots that you can use to reattach backing to line
Most common is the nail knot.
I use a loop2loop connection with a whipped loop in the line and a bimini twist in the backing.
