Pflueger Spinning Reel Question
That's where the "decal" comes in to play. It's not really a decal, it's a sticker that you can put on the non-rubber-insert spool to give braid something to bite into. Really no different from putting a bit of electrical tape on first.
Just note that depending on which size reel you bought and what size braid you might chose to use, they may not be doing you all that big of favor by having provided the rubber inserts.
Say, for example, that you bought a 8530 size reel, which is generally a great choice for medium-power spinning setups. That reel's estimated line capacities are 255 yd. 4lb / 145 yd. 6lb. / 130/8lb test. If you bought a 300 yard spool of 10 lb. braid with the intention of filling three spools with 100 yards of braid each, you'll find yourself way underspooled when you hit 100 yards, since the 10lb braid diameter is about equal to 2lb mono. So you would have been better off to begin with laying down a base of mono to make up the difference in line diameters.
So having rubber spool inserts isn't always what it's cracked up to be!
Is there a specific line for the different spools that came with my new reel? As you see, the one on the reel is vented. They both seem to be aluminum. I have other reels that came with two spools but one always seems to be made of a different material. (I don't know their specific line uses either)
I plan to put mono on one and some Sufix braid on the other.
...And what the heck is this decal for?
