GMAN’s Speed Method for In-Boat Line Re-Spooling

Gerald Swindle doesn’t mess around when it comes to beat up line or the need to fine tune pound test. He takes a seat on his boat deck and simply strips the main line down to the backing, ties a simple line to line knot, and is quickly back in the game with confidence.

You might think re-spooling takes too much time during a tournament or is just a hassle in general when on the water. This short video may change your mindset. Think of it in terms of Swindle’s framing carpenter background: when your air nailer runs out of nails, you reload. When the line on your reel is compromised or wrong for the situation, simply re-spool using GMAN’s speed method.
