Soaking time
« on: November 14, 2020, 02:31:37 PM »

How long do you guys soak spools in hot water after spooling up
And is the hottest you can get it the better

I've never soaked a spool. I use KVD line conditioner, or change the line.

Same as Fun for me.  Never have I ever soaked line in hot water.  Esox, forgive me man but you are really overthinking this whole deal.  It really is not as difficult as you are making it out to be. For over 60 years I have spooled my reels directly from the line spool and then went fishing.  That is all you gotta do, Trust  the wisdom of this old geezer and just go out and enjoy fishing it is that simple.

Its a trick I learned to help it reduce memory
That and the line spooler have reduced my tangles by 99% but was wondering about the other 1%

Well then since you seem to have all the answers, I will back away from this thread.  HAPPY SOAKING. I have nothing more to add to the discussion.

i have never heard of this, but open to it. 

have you measured you water temp?  I would think that there is a fine line between too hot.  Curious what your findings are. 

in addition, are you literally soaking your spool?  wouldnt you need to put more oil after? 

BTW K9 is the best flouro I have used.  but i mostly throw braid these days.

I've heard of it being done years ago but personally I don't see the need, it only works for the first filling, once it cools its not going to matter.
 I assume your using a spinning reel ? Be sure you spool it in the right direction the loops should be going on the reel as they came off the spool and whatever you do don't overfill it.
 I would suggest you worry about where the fish are and getting a lure in front of them.
You've been given some good advice, take it.

Esox, I used to just run the spool under luke warm tap water before spooling. I always thought it was more of the wet line than anything that made it lay down on the spool nicely. I never considered warming up the water and never heard that before. Hmm? I may have to try that!

Back in the day it was said to help with line twist, I tried it and found the best thing to do is run the line through a wet rag when you spool it, I use KVD Line and Reel, it just plane works. If I get line twist on the water I'll let out up to a hundred yards of line while idling then reel it back in running through a rag. There is nothing tied to the line, after just a minute or 2 the twist is gone.
