Backing A Big Reel With Braided Backing


Author: Bullbuster Team

Backing A 80 Wide Or 130 With Braid

In the video below Colby from Bullbuster.net talks about a spool that is made for putting braided backing on BIG REELS. The 500-yard spool of 200Lb braided fishing line is this spool. This is the spool that you need if you are filling only one big reel.  While the 2500 yard spool is always the best spool to buy on bullbuster.net, some anglers only have 1 big game reel, so the 2500 yard spool is just not practical for them. In this case, it is a good idea to use the 500-yard spool to back your reel to have that backup.
