whats the best way to load your needles off this allan (despool) ???


Believe it or not I use the handle of a cricket bat with the bat stuck in a vice. this allows the spool to rotate around the bat handle.

Clockwise to do it anticlockwise turn the spool upsidedown. If you put it on the floor and pull up it will twist.

I might get a spool of that. Not done much since the 25yd trad about 3 month ago. How many yards would you get out of it TC on a 4.25 board?

Resized too small :icon_redface:. The brown is long net twine, but its quite loose woven so it looks just as thick but its not.. The other 3 are purse twines..
