Monofilament Backing Calculator
6/9/14 @ 7:39 AM
After years of trial and error filling spools with mono backing for braided lines and leadcore, I did a search and found this website. I spooled two rods with Power Pro for dipseys and three for leadcore. The spools are filled perfectly right up to capacity. I should have thought to look online years ago for this tool. Hopefully it helps others out. http://www.igfa.org/About/Estimating-Monofilament-Backing-When-Using-Braided-Spectra.aspx

I expected it to work for the Power Pro but wondered about the leadcore since the diameter is so large in comparison (0.009" vs. 0.032") for the lb tests that I use. But after I thought about it, if you know capacity, length and diameters of the lines you're using, the calculation should work for any line.
