I never left mono. always have a couple rods with mono on them. I ended up getting 2 1000 yd of trilene XL for $11 from the Dick's sale. That was definitely a website mistake. Some guys got the 3000yd spools for the same price before they sold out

I think both cases are considered wind knots. it doesnt require a leader knot to happen. a loop in the spool is usually caused by line twist and using the reel handle to close the bail instead of doing it by hand. seems to happen a lot more often with mono/fluoro than braid. wind knots around the tip tops usually come from thin/limp braid. i always close the bail by hand and lay the line in the roller, so I almost never get a loop in the spool
this technique is awesome for putting mono on spinning reels. putting the spool in warm water is the key to reduce memoryhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?time_cont ... Hl6wdBD3Hk
