I use Surf Wax applied on the spool while it's in the line winder. The surf wax bar puts on a thick coating. It smells good too. Sex Wax is the best....

I'm not a chemist but the chemical compatibility charts for nylon (mono) and polyethylene (spectra/dyneema) say they are not affected by gasoline and grease.

Dave, someone here once mentioned putting grease on the lowest layers of line.  Can't remember or find it again but it might have been Alex.

The best part of this is the title,when I first read it I thought it said Chopstick. That would be fun to watch.

Dang it now you've got me thinking...I formulated some board wax for a buddy who was sponsored in two blends, warm weather and cold, and was head of Quality  and Engineering for Burt's Bees years back. Now i think i can  make a 'spool stick' for us without too much trouble...

A push stick with surf wax would be cool.

I dont know if you are talking about my post on this same thread (below), i just do what the Jefe does on his reels, and it have worked pretty good to me on mono line or spectra line

I always use some flex wrap over the spool and then put a light coat of yamaha grease, and then I spool the line on it, the 1st two rounds of line on the spool will be impregnated with grease and will repel the saltwater.

That was it Alex.  Thank you.  Also, thank you for the new trip report.  Really good catches.

Hadn't heard of "sex wax". The post was reported to the moderators as maybe needing some editing. Under the circumstances, I'm not changing anything. https://www.sexwax.com/

Nothing wrong here. It is an actual product for surf boards.

Made by Mr. Zog, It's been around forever. It's like the Kleenx of surfboard wax.
