How to spool your reels with NXT D-Cam

1) Fill a bucket with 6” of water

2) Punch your finger through the label on the bulk spool of NXT D-Cam mono and sit it in the bucket of water. It is important to make a hole in the label so that the water can flow through the centre of the spool. If you do not do this then the spool will continually flip with the label facing upwards. If this happens then the line is coming off the lip of the spool, rather than like a drum revolving as it sits in the water. The monofilament is spooled onto the revolving drum, and so you are simply reversing the process, avoiding all line twist which may occur if you spool up with the line being transferred over the lip of the bulk spool.

3) Grip the NXT D-Cam between your fingers, a short distance above the reel (which of course is attached to a rod butt!) and wind it onto your reel. Because the line is wet, you will not burn your fingers, so apply the correct amount of tension to properly fill your spool to the lip without the line later embedding – For example,  casting or playing a carp.

4) You only need to place your spool of NXT D-Cam into the water moments before spooling up. Never immerse in water for any amount of time prior to spooling for the above mentioned reasons.
