Penn Fierce Reel

backing for braid line?

I bought a penn fierce reel and it says (Braid Ready) does that mean i dont need mono backing before i put the braid on?

Yes you will still have to use some mono to put braided line on or use tape to keep the braided line from sliding on the spool. That tape method I never tried it, some say to use electrical tape and wrap it around the spool once then put your braided line on.

The only Penn spinning reels that are made so that you do not have to use tape or mono backing for braided lines, are the Battle and the Conquer. These two reels have a rubber piece on the spool that is there to make sure the line doesn’t slide around on the spool.
