    Does anyone know any ways of easily taking line off a spool without pulling it all off and ending up with a heap of line on the floor?

    Thanks

    I always carefully use a stanley knife to cut through the line & then bag it up & burn it

    I usually don't have much to take off as I use old line for backing. Normally i chuck the spool on the floor and wind the line off around my elbow and hand, it doesn't take long.

    electric drill, put a bolt through the spool spindle tighten it into the chuck switch on drill with the spool on the floor then wind it all back onto the old spool.
    quick and easy if you have a drill that is.

    On this subject, anyone know of a product that makes a deep spool into a shallow spool? Knowing how much backing to put on is always a problem so failing a product any suggestions? Cork would do the trick maybe if you get it the right thickness.

    John,
    1 Start with an empty spool.
    2 Put your prefered line on first.
    3 Then fill to just before the rim of your spool with backing line.
    4 Take it all off onto a spare spool.
    5 Put the backing line on first.
    6 Then your prefered line.

    Brilliant Baz,and cheers! what it is to have brains!

    I still can't understand why amongst the millions of gadgets available to us no one has marketed a 'spool filler'.
